Notes and Editorial Reviews
"The Waltzes are wonderfully deft, lightweight, and full of flair. What's more, Anievas offers interesting textual variants on what we usually encounter, for instance, in the "Farewell" (Op. 69 No. 1) and "Minute" (Op. 64 No. 1) waltzes."

--Jed Distler, ClassicsToday.com Reviewing EMI 74290

"Jerzy Maksymiuk has the Polish RSO shape the orchestral exposition of the first concerto remarkably affectionately. Amongst the angst, there are swellings of real joy. Ohlsson’s approach is notably subtle at lower dynamic levels – his figuration sometimes sounds as if it is bending naturally in a breeze."

-- Colin Clarke, MusicWeb International Reviewing EMI 71472
