Notes and Editorial Reviews

“an exceptional recording” Charles Timbrell, International Record Review, October 2006

“not since Vladimir Ashkenazy’s classic 1964 set for Decca have Chopin’s Ballades sounded so emotionally rich and imposing as they do here.” Julian Haylock, Classic FM Magazine, November 2006

“Thankfully, he is more than a pair of cheekbones, and brings intelligence and delicacy to this disc of Ballades.” Anna Picard, The Independent on Sunday, 17 December 2006

“Tuck into this feast of ballades and savour his prize-winning qualities: superb dexterity, imaginative use of colour and dynamics, beautiful tone, idiomatic phrasing, likeable interpretations.” Michael McMillan, Pianist, February/March 2007
