What an extraordinary testimonial to the long and brilliant career of Earl Wild. At the age of eighty, when the physical capacities of most pianists have waned considerably, he has ventured to record the most demanding and taxing of piano works – and with stunning results. There are simply no limitations to Wild’s handling of the intricately complicated and difficult passagework abounding in the Hammerklavier – leaps, polyphonic interchanges, trills, and the like.

Susan Kagan, Fanfare, December 1995.
