Reviews

‘Foldes finds infinitely more of implication in the notes themselves, and he is constantly at pains to show exactly what Beethoven wrote and what he meant by it. There is an enormous amount to listen to in his reading and the style of it is firmly defined and idiomatic.’ Gramophone (Piano Concerto
No. 5)
