“Now here was a great pianist if ever there was one.” (of 1968 concert, part here): Such is the quality of his pianism … highly recommendable issue … There are some smudges but of little account given the musical insights and the beauty of sound he produced . The Rhapsodie Espagnole is pretty breathtaking.” (Penguin Guide)
