 Wonderful Music Atrociously Performed December 11, 2013 By David Luck (Goleta, CA) See All My Reviews "That's about it. The Krenek Sonata, played at something like 2/3 speed, simply sags and falls apart. The Medtner pieces sound like Sati, and so forth. Ms. Klein was a fine pianist 40 years ago, but by the time she made these recordings she could no longer get her fingers over the notes." Report Abuse
