Both recordings fill the discs' capacity to the very last minute, and both CDs are connected by a propensity for meditative tempi and widely gestured agogics
which act in contrast to the rushed speed and spirit of modern life--and sometimes also against a more traditional interpretation.
Then collectively off-headphones, I help them make decisions about shaping, dynamics and agogics
based exclusively on the form of the piece and its musical events--melodic, rhythmic, harmonic, textural.
and dynamics play an important part in creating the desired effects." (Raducanu 2004: 28-29)

(5) Ax encapsulates the unique pianistic qualities of Horowitz as 1) an enormous dynamic range, coupled with complete control of the subtle shadings; 2) an "extraordinary sensibility for the agogics

, sharper accentuation and rhythmic pulsation--is there in spades in Christian Tetzlaff and John Storgards's account of Suk's Fantasy, and Dvorak's Violin Concerto and Romance.

The score cues and tells many a thing--particularly the dynamics, tempo and agogics
