Haas was the most tasteful and discreet of pianists . . . with the subtlest tonal palette and a very personal way of using it. Her Debussy Etudes and Préludes are crisply focused, her Schumann (Concerto and "Fantasiestücke", Op 12) viewed from a markedly classical perspective.

She was a pianist of exceptional taste, poise, and refinement, not dissimilar to Clara Haskil or the early Murray Perahia. She played with great clarity, and had a sure sense of line . . . a natural Classicist . . . When you spend time with this box set, you feel you are in the company of a brainy, civilized woman who understands music, and knows how to play the piano.

Pride of place among reissues of piano recordings goes to DG's eight-disc survey of Monique Haas in its Original Masters series . . . Haas's Ravel concertos with Paul Paray and the Orchestre National are well known and they are also among the most engaging and stylish of any on disc. Her solo Ravel . . . is just as wining -- unfussy, technically very clean, rhythmically always animated and with a limpid tone and a lovely sense of line. The Debussy Préludes (complete recordings of both books) and an exceptional set of the Etudes are both outstanding examples of this French pianist at her most stylish and direct. Of the works with orchestra in this set Haas's Schumann Piano Concerto with the Berlin Philharmonic and Eugen Jochum is very welcome . . . [Bartók]: . . . Haas's playing has muscularity, a superb sense of rhythmic propulsion and poetry, and Fricsay is an outstanding partner . . . Max Rostal is on fine form in the Sonata, and the Rostal/Haas partnership is also to be heard in a poised and atmospheric reading of the Ravel Violin Sonata . . . Presentation is excellent and the remastering has been done with great care. Warmly recommended.

. . . Monique Haas se révčle toujours fabuleuse de classe, de fraîcheur, de vie et, on ne saurait assez le répéter, de naturel.
