"For here, on this truly glorious record, she ranges effortlessly from sheer wit and style (Schumann's Carnaval) to a dancing rhythmic magic (Scarlatti), from a glowing poetic inwardness (all the Brahms, with perhaps Op. 76 No . 3 as the distantly shining star of the set) to a matchless eloquence (Howard Ferguson's tragic masterpiece, his 1938-40 Piano Sonata) . Yet all such qualities are seamlessly joined. Nothing is forced and whether you consider her regal tonal resource (tirelessly celebrated by Stephen Kovacevich, her finest pupil), or a naturalness and candour easy to underestimate, everything is achieved with supreme authority; an illusion achieved by only the truest artists." (Gramophone)
