All the speeds here just feel right: unhurried, but equally brimming with energy and flow. What really makes this recording one to treasure, though, is the degree of uncontrived personality and artistry on display…Another point I can’t shout loudly enough about is the exceptional blending…Have I sold it enough? I hope so. Because really, this is properly heavenly.
