Live at Maybeck Recital Hall, Vol. 16

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richard S. Ginell
For Live at Maybeck Recital Hall, Vol. 16, Concord persuaded a reigning giant of the piano to record at Maybeck's Yamaha keyboard -- and the result is one of the most musical, and certainly one of the most enjoyable, concerts in the whole series.
