  1. danke, Rachmaninov. Please, send my gratitude to Mr. Trottar as well. Surely this is something quite unexpected, and for your zeal in sharing this release, both should be commended. Regards from Madrid.

  2. von karolyi was in the fiftees together with Stefan Ashkenase the Chopin authority. Karolyi’s stile was more elegant and very traditional. I heard him often in Cologne.
    Thank you! Trottar

  3. Are you kidding me….this is a 55 years old disc that sounds amazing…I wasn’t familiar with Karolyi but he KNOWS his way around Chopin…many thanks…
