Reviews

‘sparkling, stylish pianism’ Limelight

‘It was a stroke of genius to put together this collection of four great contemporary pianists doing a selection of the concertos. Schiff … knows the key to Bach is pitching the playing between unmediated simplicity and lyric expressiveness … Mustonen is typically dynamic and Alicia de Larrocha’s interpretation is strongly controlled but obviously heartfelt’ Sydney Star Observer
