Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Sanderling takes a surprisingly relaxed view of the opening pages. Complacency or power in reserve? Neither, really. As it turns out, his main priorities are textural clarity and musicality of phrasing. The steady tempos are a means to those ends, and there is much to be said for this kind of interpretative understatement...High technical polish from the Clevelanders and a beautifully clear, full-range recording..."

-- Gramophone [2/1993]
