Notes and Editorial Reviews

What may well send your world into a different plane is the Piano Concerto No.2 as played in 1970 with John Ogdon. There is a little analogue tape hiss as you might expect from a recording of this age, but the quality is certainly no aberration on this otherwise digital disc, and in any case, the playing is such that all considerations of technology take last place.
