My take- talent and a beautifully designed instrument cannot make up for a poor composition.

Dame Gillian Weir compares this to the tolling of a great bell as it moves from sombre generis to an avalanche of sound with a peaceful end

Rather disappointing, surprisingly, due to the over-florid decorations at the start and the hurried and "busy" nature of what followed. The technical ability is, as ever, utterly flawless but this performance fell horribly flat. The 'grave' lost all meaning with that shrill stop on the right hand, and I'm afraid I lost interest around there.
