“In the very familiar Chopin Waltzes, Levy coaxes out inner lines that I had not noticed before. Yet unlike other musicians who attempt to apply ‘personality’ to the music they play, Levy never fights the score, and always sounds in sync with the composer’s intentions. Recommended, even if you have these pieces in other collections”.
“The straightforward, flowing melody becomes a very elevated form, made up of chrystalline pure sounds. A lyrical and romantic cantabile highlighted by elegant use of the pedal. An excellent rendering… “.
“An ideal poem of the soul… this intimate moment, so deeply experienced in its thoughtfulness, thanks to the seductive, rich art of this sensitive pianist”.
