"..not just a case of the performer subordinating himself to the composer, but of both, united in the service of music's great miracle-an entire attitude to life encapsulated in sound...From the opening phrases of each it is clear that his sights are set on long-term processes-this is not playing wich depicts; rather it maps out a journey of the spirit...same total concentration and inner intensity as the sonatas; the last (moment musicaux) extends sublimely to a hypnotic 11.48!
