Notes & Reviews:

There are few living pianists so well-known and with such legendary status as Evgeny Kissin. A former child prodigy, Kissin came to international attention in March 1984 when, at the age of twelve, he performed Chopin's Piano Concertos 1 & 2 with the Moscow State Philharmonic. Since then he has gone on to win countless prizes and plaudits. He now brings his considerable talents to Beethoven's five magnificent piano concertos, recording them for the first time as a complete cycle.

The Observer - Stephen Pritchard
The technically brilliant Russian is often criticised for his dourly clinical playing, but his Barbican Beethoven series... displayed a playful, warmer performer, more ready to unbutton, as in the finale of the First, or in the friskiness of the Fifth

MusicWeb International
Kissin impressed throughout with his marvellous rich, almost chocolate-like tone. His articulation too was impeccable... The orchestra and Sir Colin were on truly wondrous form, and Kissin's pianism proved ... a marvel in its dynamism and delicacy.

Gramophone Magazine
Evgeny Kissin is a Beethoven player of rare pedigree and distinction... the technique awesome, not least his ability to refine tone and taper dynamics in those high-lying passages where Beethoven's expressive powers are at their most rarefied.
