Reviews
"This enterprising disc showcases pianist Ruth Slenczynska, who was a world-famous child prodigy in the 30's. She essays several Bach works and a batch of Liszt miniatures here, including the latter's transcriptions of Chopin's Polish song arrangements. Her Bach is highly articulate, while her Chopin/Liszt is an unalloyed delight. The remastering of the mono source delivers a firm, clear sound. The liner notes are outstanding." - Billboard Magazine
