"Linda Smith's varied and well-played . . . program of Brahms's late Vier Klavierstücke, Bach's Partita No. 4 and Chopin's Barcarolle, Op. 60 is straight stuff.  What makes her [compact] disc special is the inclusion of Samuel Barber's Piano Sonata.  In hindsight, Barber's may be the perfect post-modern sonata with Baroque bits bumping up against jazz dissonance.  Smith handles it all comfortably . . .
