Rachmaninoff Second - 1961

"A virtuosos of great ability. His touch not only on the keyboard but on the psychological pulse of the music was admirable, and his treatment of the slow movement made it clear that his instinct for the ineer feeling of the music of the Rachmaninoff Second Concerto is as strong as his dexterity in displaying its bright surface."
-The London Times, May 10, 1960

"The American pianist is clearly ONE OF THE WORLD'S FINEST even though he has merely reached his middle thirties. He has attained full maturity and his playing is not only brilliant but masterful." (Prokofiev Third Concerto).
Milwaukeee Journal, March 29, 1960
