Fanfare (5-6/98, p.151) - "...This, the 18th volume in the estimable series, gives us a pair of well-matched concertos by two Late Romantic contemporaries....With superb notes by Korngold biographer Brendan Carroll, those following this series [will] want to snap up this installment right away."
BBC Music (4/98, pp.73-74) - Performance: 5 (out of 5), Sound: 5 (out of 5) "...This is [the] first recording [of Marx's 'Romantic Piano Concerto'], and Marc-André Hamelin's exceptional pianism ensures that it gets a first-rate rendering....Full marks to the orchestra for effort."
