Reviews

'This finely recorded recital confirms Hamelin's place as one of the most enterprising and virtuosic performers of our day' (Gramophone)

'Roslavets is ideally served by Hamelin who relishes the elaboration and sorts it out with his customary acuteness of ear for quality and balance of sound' (BBC Record Review)

'Roslavets is a most compelling musical presence. For those interested in digging beneath the surface of 20th-century Russian culture, musical and social, grab this disc' (American Record Guide)

'Hamelin's playing remarkably demonstrates a phenomenal set of fingers and a hyper-accurate ear. Variable but exotic and intriguing music, immaculately played' (Classic CD)

'Canadian super-pianist Marc-André Hamelin captures their individuality and multilayered complexity with superb aplomb' (The Irish Times)

'Marc-André Hamelin, the thinkers' virtuoso, has restored a major composer to history. Wonderful music … [the] performances are a miracle of dexterity and understatement' (Soundscapes, Australia)
