Gramophone Magazine

April 2009

“With Volume 8 of the piano music of Villa-Lobos, Sonia Rubinsky reaches a triumphant end to a long, complex and luxuriant journey. And to an even greater extent that in the earlier issues she relishes every twist and turn of Brazil's ever-varied genius, playing with an enviable virtuosity, warmth and affection.”
