SIMON BARERE at Carnegie Hall Vol.4: 1949

BEETHOVEN Piano Sonata 27 • SCHUMANN Carnaval
CHOPIN Andante spianato & Grande Polonaise brillante
Scherzo 3 • Waltz 5 • Etudes, Op.10/8, 4 & 5
LISZT Gnomenreigen

Though musically provocative, Barere's playing suggests in its freedom and daring the extravagant imaginative forays that Liszt and other Great Romantics indulged in as a matter of course. No one today, not even the likes of Kissin or Volodos, sound anything remotely like him, which makes APR's CD among the most significant 'great piano' releases of the last 10 years. (Gramophone)
