Comments:Demian Goldstein said:

Excellent interpretation by Pogorelich, the Tempo is a killer and almost every 16th note on the second Suite is precise as a swiss clock. A must.

Jonathan Roberts said:

Ivo has truly mastered the English Suite No. 2. It must be heard to be believed. The quality of the recording is nothing less than you should expect from Deutsche Grammophon.
