'As soon as Nadejda Vlaeva launches into her first Saint-Saëns Bach transcription, you know you're in for a treat. Sure enough, volume ten of Hyperion's Bach Transcription series provides a parade of joys for pianophiles and Bach junkies alike … a pianofest requiring sumptuous tone, concertante awareness and dazzling octaves. Vlaeva gives it the lot. This young Bulgarian pianist is new to Hyperion; her terrific CD bodes well for the future' (BBC Music Magazine)

'The Ouverture to Cantata, BWV29 is positively stunning under Vlaeva's fingers … in the Andante to Violin Sonata No 2 we are treated to some fine contrapuntal exchanges and subtle melodic revelations to remind us of the mystery and mastery of the great man … all in all, this is a notably spontaneous-sounding recording. Vlaeva pushes all the right buttons and takes this significant Hyperion project a step closer to its apotheosis' (International Record Review)
