***

“This Silesian pianist, who spent most of the his life in England, made a speciality of unusual virtuoso works, such as Balakirev's Sonata. His playing sounds dated and not as spectacular as it needs to be.”

Gramophone Magazine

November 2007

“…this fascinating programme is an invaluable reminder of a pianist who in his heyday (1938-51, the time of these performances, and still earlier in 1928) was a luxuriant stylist who could touch off much of is vast repertoire with dazzling musical and technical aplomb.”
