Gramophone Magazine

July 2008

“Bewitching at times, of course, but overall the Cherkassky magic is missing. Jeremy Nicholas”

International Record Review

Robert Matthew-Walker

“This is a most compelling performance of the 'Emperor' - and after the power and healthy mastery of the first movement, which also takes in a feeling of inner communion, the profoundly sensitive second movement, without unmusical affectations or mannerisms, is equally engrossing. This is an ideal record to be heard by those who take their music appreciation seriously and who care about the legacy of a quite wonderful artist.”
