Notes and Editorial Reviews

"One thing you can rely on with any pianist schooled in the Russian tradition is a virtuoso technique, and Bunin certainly has that. Not just in the keyboard fireworks department but also (and still more impressively) in the realm of tone control – something which often relies almost as much on the feet as on the fingers. At every dynamic level the sound here is beautiful, and the balance of voices deftly judged. This is an artist who loves his instrument – and the recording team has done him proud."

-- Jeremy Siepmann, BBC Music Magazine Review of original release Hänssler Classic 98183
