Notes & Reviews:

The Times
Cutting through any deadening deference, here's an endearing spring clean to give these classics a new bounce and vigour...Two centuries of gilt are scraped off and the gain in dynamism is immense.

Gramophone Magazine
Notes pour and sparkle from Brautigam's fingers like diamonds...clearly Bruatigam has chosen his instrument to reflect his love of clarity, lightness and speed.

Classic FM Magazine
The opening of the concerto is excellent: Parrott gets appropriately spacious playing from the orchestra, while the bell-like tone of Brautigam's instrument - a Steinway Model D - helps to prevent the music from sounding too bombastic...[in the Fantasia] Brautigam could almost be Beethoven himself improvising.
