Notes and Editorial Reviews

[Katya Apekisheva] "...was trained at the fabled Gnessin school. She has such rock-solid technique that she can focus entirely on what she wants to do with it. Her "Old Castle" had noble restraint, her "Tuileries" were gracefully unhurried, her "Unhatched Chicks" kicked up a storm, her "Great Gate of Kiev" climaxed in a blaze of magnificence. Until this sensational concert, Katya Apekisheva had been a slightly shadowy figure on Britain's pianistic scene. Not any more." - Michael Church, The Independent (Wigmore Hall, December 2011)
