Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Michael Grebanier too gives it a powerful, richly expressive reading, with Janet Guggenheim an incisive partner, very clearly focused if not always as warm. The slow movement is most moving, the headlong finale thrilling in its clarity. The shorter pieces make up an excellent bargain disc to match rivals at premium price." - Penguin Guide to Recorded Classical Music - 2008 Edition, page 1038 "Michael Grebanier too gives it a powerful, richly expressive reading, with Janet Guggenheim an incisive partner, very clearly focused if not always as warm.
