‘Warmly recommended’ (BBC Music Magazine)

‘Two exceedingly well-filled discs give us the cream of Rubinstein's piano music, beginning with the delicious Melody in F, his most famous composition’ (Classic CD)

«Les qualitées réclamées par Rubinstein sont comparables: panache, fougue, enthousiasme, puissance. Leslie Howard les possède à un haut degré. Il y a joint une délicatesse du toucher et une facilité pour un timbre moelleux qui font merveille dans les pages de caractère, alors qu'un rubato discret confère à la musique ce frémissent du coeur sans lequel il n'est pas de véritable romantisme» (Diapason, France)
