CRITIC REVIEWS:

"Ward Marston’s exemplary transfers bring [Godowsky’s] piano sound forward (the ear soon adjusts to the background sizzle) affording the limited acoustic piano tone a greater depth and richness….This superbly presented and annotated release...is of immense value and interest to pianophiles in particular. I look forward impatiently to successive volumes."

- Jeremy Nicholas, GRAMOPHONE, July, 2005

"…with the other great Godowsky recordings, it is part of his small group of piano recordings for which no words of praise are extravagant enough – Herculean, supreme, transcendent, magical, magnificent–perfect."

- Edward Blickstein, PROGRAM NOTES
