. . . this great musician here returns to [top form] . . . These may be his first recordings of these works but they sound as though they have been in his fingers for a long time . . . [Chopin Variations]: Ashkenazy's playing of this is quite bewitching . . . This is his most successful disc for some time, a notable adjunct to the renowned Rachmaninov recordings of his youth for the same label.
