This review is from: Stravinsky: Three mouvements from Petrushka; Prokofiev: Piano Sonata 7; Webern: Piano Variations; Boulez: Piano Sonata 2 (Audio CD)
I listened to this CD recently and I feel that it is one of the best piano recordings I have ever heard. The Stravinsky I had previously heard performed by Yefim Bronfman in a good performance, but this one is in a different league. I think it is Pollini's phrasing and notice of articulation - even in some very hairy moments - that is most impressive. Really cool!
The Prokofiev and the Webern are also beautifully played. As for the Boulez, he's a bit of a wet fish and I don't see the point in music like this. Sorry!
