Anyone heard any of the new Marston 7-cd set of performances by the pianist ? TIA.

Sydney Foster plays Prokofieff’s 3rd Piano Sonata, live, 1959:

A YT Comment: “ Recently listened to Gilels in this piece and he simply blasts his way through it; Foster, by contrast, though equally "virtuosic", reveals all kinds of delightful details and overall conveys a sense of joy in the music where Gilels merely hectors. In fact, this is surely one of the great recordings of this piece.”
