The 1972 Finnadar Webern/Boulez album was a milestone entry both for Biret and recordings of contemporary music; that alone should be enough to persuade seasoned contemporary music fans to come to this table. However, its reappearance on the market - no matter how welcome - should not be taken as a substitute for her later Boulez sonatas recording; that, too, is a milestone, and really both recordings should be appreciated.

Idil Biret is equal to the challenge (of Boulez's 2nd Sonata). She does not merely sustain the thirty minute length-enormously ambitious for music that cannot fall back on the familiar landmarks of tonality-but inflects and shapes it in a remarkable way. The drama her. s the dialogue between a thought process and its corporeal realization, between the musical idea itself and its expression as sound-color of an almost improvisatory nature. Miss Biret catches all this, and she does so beautifully.
