"When Tipo began appearing in the US, the papers hailed her as 'The Neopolitan Horowitz'. Of course, her style is far removed from Horowitz', but the amazing technical facility certainly impressed audiences.
These recordings, made show what the fuss was about. Her Scarlatti is more whimsical and 'brilliant' than her later recordings. This disc, which she recorded in 1955 in a mere 4 hours, was hailed by Newsweek magazine as "the most spectacular record of the year".
In the Mozart concertos she really shines, giving performances that sparkle and constantly make happy discoveries in the music without being in the least precious.
The sound quality is reasonable."

To be succinct This recording of Mozart and Scarlatti is simply sensational --5 stars --Is there a more talented pianist/musician--I doubt it. I wish she would record more Mozart, Haydn, Schubert and yes the Beethoven sonatas opus 28 the pastoral, the opus 109 this should be incredible and opus 110 --If she wants to record the opus 111 --that would be fine with me maybe also the last Schubert sonatas--Ravel Gaspard de la nuit --more concerti-- the Beethoven 3rd and 4th etc. Please get her into the recording studio with a serious recording contract"
