Description
Slenczynska's spirited and probing performances of Bach's Italian Concerto, Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue in D Minor, BWV 903, Toccata in C Minor, BWV 911, and Sonata in D Major, BWV 963, are accompanied by Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No. 15 in A Minor ("Rákóczy March"), Consolation No. 1 in E Major, and transcriptions of six Polish songs by Chopin.

"Both timbrally assertive and interpretively strong minded. Slenczynska's Chopin/Liszt is acerbic in accent, yet brightly colored and molded with a rhapsodic freedom that's spellbinding. Her high-energy Bach, with its daring fusion on textural lucidity, well-honed articulation and unapologetic rhythmic license breaks away from the stultifying piety that marks so many Bach performances. The sound is excellent."—Fanfare

"In what might be called the original 'Shine' story, teenage American piano prodigy Ruth Slenczynska withdrew from concert life in the late 1930s because of an overbearing father. She returned to the platform as an adult in 1951 and recorded some splendid Bach, Chopin and Liszt…. Here is Bach without frills—the soulful, somber heart of the master conveyed by the simplest means."—Denver Post

"Her Bach is highly articulate, while her Chopin/Liszt is an unalloyed delight."—Billboard
