"Verbier Festival: Highlights 2007
While there are a lot of big names in classical music on this disc much of the music played were excerpts from longer works much as you would find on a sampler. I would have liked to hear all of the Ravel Violin and Piano sonata and the Schumann Piano Quintet. Certainly having Joshua Bell play only the first movement of the Tchaikovsky Concerto didn't make sense.That was a strange choice for what is primarily a piano festival
The best pieces are Nelson Friere playing Debussy's Cildrens Corner and the two short pieces by Kissin. I would have liked to here more from Helene Grimaud. Nevertheless,all of the performances were well above average."

"There will be people that will tear this thing apart piece by piece. I happened to love every performance. I recommend it to anyone that loves classical music and watching great artists bring music alive. The performance of the Debussy Children's Suite by Nelson Freire is gorgeous. It's very fine musical performances."
