*****

“Here are some examples of what makes Cortot special...The combination of poetic inwardness and virtuoso exuberance is magical.”

Gramophone Magazine

December 2010

“Everything here is delectable but the very disc itself would object if I did not single out the pianist's arrangement of the Largo from Bach's F minor Concerto, something for everyone's desert island and enough to bring tears to the eyes of even the most puritan listeners.”
