Notes and Editorial Reviews
"This is an august pairing that shows Perlemuter to have retained his fabled digital finesse well into the 1970s and beyond, though his playing in 1974 is clearly and I think demonstrably superior. Fortunately both sonatas were taped in 1974. The B minor is captivating in its sectional control, tonal sophistication and sense of characterisation. If it doesn’t aim at the highest level of emotional involvement, then that was Perlemuter’s way. The companion B flat minor [No.2] is a powerful study in contrasts, with tonal beauty, a stratified sense of colour and a profoundly moving funeral march at its heart."
