However successful, overwhelming and moving the other movements of the two sonatas on this CD may be, here I will restrict myself to the two opening movements which are indisputably hors catgorie, as the French say. Of course its all very hard to put into words, but Ill try to explain how I see them. If I would acclaim their originality, genius and complete mastery or praise their combination of beauty, perfection and wealth of psychology and emotion, most people would agree with that, be it with indifference and right they are. Confronted with such creations all description is doomed to stuttering and stumbling, every compliment will remain a pityful molehill compared to the mountain which is the object of our admiration.
