Andreas Boyde’s performance is both very exciting and gloriously effective. So good is [the Schoenfield] that it makes George Gershwin sound like an amateur. What joyful, witty and totally absorbing music this is. As for the piano playing, one can only exclaim astonishment and admiration. It is a sensational success. The recording is exemplary.
