Reviews

'Scarcely anybody outside Russia looks at them these days, but, as Stephen Coombs eloquently establishes on this disc, they are gems' (The Daily Telegraph)

'A sparkling collection of gems honed to perfection by a fine craftsman' (Classic CD)

'Exquisite piano pieces. Yet another winner by a pianist who is proving a worthy champion of Late Romantic Russian repertoire' (The Scotsman)

'A ravishing range of tonal colours and flawless sense of timing which constantly reduced this particular listener to putty in the master's hands' (Hi-Fi News)
