CBC, July 2002

"Other pianists have recorded the work since Lhevinne, but few have come close to the accuracy and flair. It's no wonder that audiences refused to leave Lhevinne's recitals until he played it as an encore. Recorded in 1928, here's ON THE BEAUTIFUL BLUE DANUBE by Strauss, Jr., arr. by Shulz-Evler and played by the incomparable Joesf Lhevinne...If you love the music for the piano, it's legends, stories and performers, you'll want this one...At budget-price, it's great value. The full five stars."

Jed Distler, July 2002

"Finally! Naxos blesses us with the first decent-sounding CD transfers of the legendary Josef Lhevinne's complete studio recordings, a slender yet priceless legacy that belongs in every, and I mean every serious piano collection...It's not just Lhevinne's spectacular technique that amazes, but his sense of style, his diamond-like sonority, his unassailable authority and command...Absolutely essential, especially at Naxos' rock-bottom price."
