Notes and Editorial Reviews
[Gramophone Award 1980]
"In this recording I am confident you will find an exceptional degree of inspiration in both the music and in the way it is played. [... ] all four movements have an almost mesmeric tension, a positively creative musicality; your attention is gripped, your absorption demanded as of right. The sound is splendidly rounded and full, especially the piano tone."

Gramophone, 1981
