Reviews

‘You know straight away that this is to be a ‘take no prisoners’ performance … superb playing … intricate passage-work is dispatched with ease and relish [Left Hand Concerto]exciting, edge-of-seat stuff at times with calm, gentleness at others’ Fine Music

‘Alicia de Larrocha’s limpid, elegant pianism is equally at home in the brilliant, refined impressionism of Ravel and the late-Romantic intensity of Fauré and Franck’ Limelight

‘this Australian release is very welcome indeed. The performances are excellent, with de Larrocha, in her distinctive way, finding plenty of colour and sparkle’
