BBC Music Magazine

April 2010

****

“Magisterial and powerful playing”

Gramophone Magazine

July 2010

“Michelangeli's explosive but flawlessly controlled force and energy are frightening in their perfection and I doubt whether a more masterly Second Scherzo exists on record...[his] agility in the last two movements of Beethoven's Sonata No. 3 has to be heard to be believed.”
