Quotes about Ivan MoravecEdit
- Moravec gave me this recording ages ago, but only now have I found the time and inclination to listen to it. I've no desire to pick holes in his interpretation and, when all's said and done, there's really nothing to pick holes in. These two sonatas aren't a part of my repertory, so I can listen to them purely for my own enjoyment (an enjoyment guaranteed, of course, by the composer). Moravec is an altogether admirable and professional pianist. He understands what he's playing.
