Sunday Times

18th September 2016

“His unfolding of the lovely G minor Op 24, No 1, with its gentle, sighing motifs , is pliantly phrased and delicately shaped, but there is no lack of temperament in his virtuoso dispatch of the big pieces that conclude each set.”

MusicWeb International

“This must be one of the most appealing Chopin discs I’ve ever come across.”

Gramophone Magazine

Awards Issue 2016

“An ideal realisation of these exquisite dances, the likes of which I never dreamt of hearing…Liszt said it: ‘A wind plays in the leaves, life unfolds and develops beneath them, but the tree remains the same – that is the Chopin rubato.’ Kolesnikov does it…these performances are the most beautiful and strikingly original I’ve heard.”

Classical Ear

*****

“The 26-year-old's latest Hyperion release is arguably the best Chopin recording I have encountered in recent years…from start to finish Kolesnikov doesn’t lose sight of the fact these are dances in miniature and his phrasing of each is entirely apposite. Chopin’s inventiveness is made the inescapable feature of this recording”
