"Ms Haskil is a master of refinement, thoughtful subtlety of phrase, and variety of presentation….if true artistry and richness of expression is your preference, this is your dish."
- John P. McKelvey, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, May/June, 2006
“As a pianist, Clara Haskil’s playing was marked by a purity of tone and phrasing that may have come from her skill as a violinist. Transparency and sensitive inspiration were other hallmarks of her style. Well regarded as a chamber musician, Haskil collaborated with such famed musicians as Georges Enescu, Eugène Ysaÿe, Pablo Casals, Joseph Szigeti, Géza Anda, Isaac Stern and Arthur Grumiaux, the latter with whom she played her last concert. While renowned primarily as a violinist, Grumiaux was also a fine pianist, and he and Haskil would sometimes swap instruments."
