Reviews

‘Miss Larrocha strikes me as one of the very best pianists to have come out of Spain in recent years. She has an impeccably clean technique, considerable strength, verve and temperament but a level enough head to keep her from exaggerating effects … Her tonal sense and phrasing are exemplary.’ Gramophone (Turina)
