Reviews

This extremely handsome production is a worthy tribute to what is without any shadow of a doubt one of the great recordings of the last century. Gramophone Magazine 01/2011

"A handsome tribute volume, complete with essays, photos, and manuscript scores showing that simplicity took more revisions than you might think." (Music Gift Guide, The Boston Globe) As seen in Time Out New York
