  "Very well played by Paul Jacobs and Ursula Oppens.  The second disc contains extras and there's a track featuring Aaron Copland as a performer (also when he had a conversation with Jacobs).  The Ghost Rags by Bolcom are rather quiet, so you may want to turn up the volume in that part."

Piano Music: Essential Classics
13.  Piano Music: Essential Classics by Philippe Entremont
The list author says:
  "First heard the Philippe Entremont recordings on a Columbia Masterworks LP.  Although the LP is a little too scratchy (and I was too picky about that).  So, I sold it at a flea market and thought of looking for a CD with the recordings.  This is about as close to that album I could get.

Worth adding.  Very well played."
