Notes & Reviews:

Martin Helmchen's last two CDs have both been Music Choice of the Month in BBC Music Magazine. His recording of the "Trout" received excellent reviews all over the world: "The young Martin Helmchen is as gifted a new pianist as I expect to hear for years" BBC Music Magazine.

BBC Music Magazine
Martin Helmchen is clearly a staunch advocate for Dvorák's neglected Concerto. There are many things to enjoy in this beautifully recorded interpretation, but the orchestra is not nearly as assured in the Dvorák as the Schumann... both Helmchen and Albrecht give a magnificently assured performance of the Schumann concerto.

The Independent
Martin Helmchen delivers a refreshing performance of Schumann and Dvorak's piano concertos...the tumbling motifs of Dvorak's first movement are impulsive, the cadenza and Andante are confidently characterised.

The Guardian
A genuinely distinguished account of the Schumann concerto, beautifully coloured and phrased, and with a lightness of touch that's altogether admirable...
