Notes & Reviews:

The Guardian
Artur Pizarro certainly sets himself some enormous challenges, both musically and technically. But as the Portuguese pianist points out in his fascinating sleevenotes, both are works he has known all his life, and that familiarity certainly pays dividends in these likable performances, which have a wonderfully natural feel to them.

Gramophone Magazine
These 'Goya-like' works... are love-poems and Artur Pizarro captures their improvised, dreamlike quality to perfection with a golden tone and caressing touch... it is difficult not to fall for Pizarro's lyrical grace, the even temperament of his approach and the unfailingly lovely sound he produces

Financial Times
He faces down the technical challenges of Goyescas with ease and never over-lards the Latin flavour: the softer, romantically stylised moments are exquisitely handled.

BBC Music Magazine
[Pizarro] brings spaciousness and a fine balancing of inner parts, in chords and counterpoint alike, alongside a freedom and energy very much his own... his formidable technique provides the means to a musical and poetic end, rather than causing flamboyance.
