"His performances were expressive and full of passion...This is an artist who means every note he plays." (The New York Times)
"Pianistic eloquence with a special gift for commentary." (The Washington Post)
It's a great idea to have the combination of the concert and the explanation. It brings the piece of music and the composer closer to you. The performance is fantastic, I have listened to it again and again.
"Wish the playing was better"
Quite surprised from such a musician to hear such a poor performance. Very blurry and heavy, many times banging too. To be honest, I do think the info is great especially for young kids, but I will save the money and not buy more from him.
"I Take Back What I Said"
I take back what I said in my previous review about this being too short for a whole book credit. Yeah, it's short, but it's really great and more than worth it. Go for it!
