Little prestidigitation or pianistic fireworks to be heard on this meditative CD. Few of the pieces are out of reach of non-professional pianists, and no one will fail to benefit from this demonstration that ultimately the most important equipment for pianists is a pair of acutely sensitive ears to control the fingers
