Notes and Editorial Reviews

In his pursuit of expression Luisada never resorts to over-extreme tempo change for sectional mood contrast; each waltz coheres as a whole... [H]is romantic warmth and drive are likeably youthful.

-- Gramophone [5/1991]
reviewing the Luisada performances

------------

[Menahem Pressler's] way with...Chopin is...idiomatic and persuasive, playing the virtuosic episodes in the Chopin fluently, with beautifully balanced tone, and reserving a harder, more brittle sound for a few climactic moments. The finale, for instance, begins in a subdued, rather melancholic way, so that the more animated music later on is all the more effective. And in this work, apparently dominated by the piano,
Read more Greenhouse and Cohen show how fine Chopin’s writing for strings is, especially in the Adagio, with its long Italianate melodies.
