Performance:   Sonics:
This Avex classics sacd is not the easiest to find out there.Pity because itcontains an interesting popular variety but slightly misleading title.The mostly well known pieces are French Impressionists pieces.
Sonic quality is about as good as it gets from this very young lookin Japanese prizewinning player.
OK not the most prodigious prizes but it establishes her pednigree.The playing at first hearing could be described as steady without any great risk taking or revealing any mega new insight into these warhorses.
I particularly enjoyed La Valse not available on sacd as somehow she seems to cut loose on that track and then throws in a romantic version of Saties pieces to follow.
After several playings I warmed more to the almost neutral style with a romantic hint.
So if want thesese pieces in a collection or just different versions and top of the range reocording then start searching.
Liner notes in Japanese and one page covering all aspects in English.Standard CD case with no English on Rear cover or spine.
