"This CD set is just fine, and nice to see, since Balakirev can be hard to find. But the composer is all Balakirev, not Glinka, Chopin, Beethoven, etc. Whoever wrote the notes was confused by what "Transcriptions" are. They are Balakirev's compositions based on Glinka, Chopin, etc."

"I heard Waltz No. 5 on the radio, and was struck by how much control Paley possesses on the piano. It sounds to me like he uses very little pedal, and the result is a crystal-clear sound, not "washed-out" by too much pedal as some pianists are wont to do. After hearing this, I want more of Paley."
