  • “....Horowitzean flair.......far ranging dynamism, and admittedly at times with a splashy style, yet by no means without the humor of a true virtuoso.”

  • “The playing of the American artist was clear, sparkling at times. The sound was full, moist and rich; the toucher suave...Is the facility with which the artist knew how to find the right tone in Debussy to be attributed to his "French" education with former assistants to Alfred Cortot? Nobody could tell, but the fact is the Poissons d'or, la plus que lente, and the Prelude from Pour le piano suited him marvelously well...Does he have a slight penchant to the nonchalance and carefree nuance?”
