Notes and Editorial Reviews

"I was much impressed at all players' discerning, tactful musicianship in avoiding obvious temptation. Sentiment in Addinsell's Rachmaninov-saluting Warsaw Concerto is never allowed to degenerate into sentimentality. Litolff's frolics are light and titillating, never steely. And Gottschalk's flagwaving stirs without sounding brazen."
-- Gramophone [5/1986] Reviewing Decca 414 348
