Notes and Editorial Reviews

Biondi approaches the score with a refreshing blend of spontaneity and imagination. His playing is free and naturally expressive, though always within the style, and possesses an appealing lyrical emphasis. The recording, made in Austria by a French team, is well engineered and ideally atmospheric. – Ted Libbey, author of The NPR Guide to Building a Classical CD Collection Biondi approaches the score with a refreshing blend of spontaneity and imagination.
