In The Press
 

"Less modestly it could have been called 'One Marvel after Another' for the performances... exhibit a skill and talent not heard since [Evgeny] Kissin's legendary teenage Russian debut."

- Gramophone

 

"He brings a juicy, jazzy brilliance to the opening Kapustin etude, and a seductively light swing to the third: he’s very much an entertainer, with a virtuosity which allows him to tackle Cziffra’s volcanic reworkings of Brahms and Strauss II comfortably."

- BBC Music Magazine

 

"an eclectic array of miniatures from sonatas by Scarlatti to works by Chopin and Kapustin, with the most fiendish passages played with the utmost sleight of hand, and with total musical sensitivity and finesse."

- International Record Review
