Notes and Editorial Reviews



"...That wonderfully rounded, opalescent tone that her touch invariably produces is coupled with the insight, poetic sensibility and discreet life-giving force that come from years of experience. It is perhaps significant that Pires...has waited until now to record two works that have long been an important part of her repertoire, but her fusion of freshness and maturity underlines her wisdom in doing so, at the same time earning our gratitude for adding another must-have CD to her distinguished discography." - Geoffrey Norris, The Telegraph, London
