Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:
BBC Music (3/98, pp.76-77) - "A special set released to celebrate 25 years of Murray Perahia's performing career is itself something of a cause for celebration. Perahia is not only a pianist's pianist, he is a musician's musician....His playing does not only sing: it speaks, providing an oasis of sanity and sensitivity, unfailing beauty and far-sighted humility. A treasure."
