Reviews

‘Its technical and scholarly attributes are happily partnered by humour, charm and a great deal of fertile imagination. Pianists who can solve Hindemith’s formidable demands have always had a great deal of fun playing ‘Ludus tonalis’, and a really distinguished performance of it can provide much enjoyment for the listener.’ High Fidelity, May 1966

‘[Käbi Laretei’s] fervent, committed, technically dazzling interpretation never has appeared on CD, and it deserves reissue.’ Classics Today
