Notes and Editorial Reviews



One feels that with every phrase she has succeeded in making the Prokofiev her own. Not to be missed.

– Gramophone [1/2014]

From the start, it is clear that there is a lot more to her than glittering technical accomplishment. That quality is present in spadefuls, but is simply used to back up a truly outstanding imagination. There is a sense of discovery, of spontaneous re-creation of these two masterpieces. Totally stylish yet wholly new; great playing and a truly outstanding issue.

– MusicWeb International

***** A wonderful disc.

– BBC Music Magazine [1/2014]

“*****
Read more Irresistible, from first to last.” – The Times Read less
