    Mr. Ma was lucky indeed to secure the services of Kathryn Stott as the pianist in this recital. Her three-disc set of the complete piano music of Gabriel Faure is something special to hear – a traversal of music that requires both technical virtuosity and intimate familiarity with a style most pianists never achieve in this repertory. That she is still relatively unknown in spite of her extraordinary gifts is a puzzle, although it should be no surprise that Mr. Ma knew her worth.

      Marcus, thanks for calling her Fauré set to our attention. I had not heard of her before this duo recital with Ma, but agree that her obscurity is undeserved.
