Notes & Reviews:

Pianist Alessio Bax is praised for creating "a ravishing listening experience" with his lyrical playing, insightful interpretations, and dazzling facility. "His playing quivers with an almost hypnotic intensity" says Gramophone, leading to "an out of body experience." Dallas Morning News

"Everything in his program unfolded with an ease, precision and beauty so seemingly effortless that the music appeared to live and breathe of its own volition."- New York Times

"Bax ravages the keyboard, remolding the ivories into sonic sculptures that light up an auditorium."- Time Out New York

"His playing quivers with an almost hypnotic intensity"-Gramophone

"The realization of a long-cherished dream...it is a look at the great Rachmaninov from different angles, a brief chronicle of the life and work of the last of the Romantics."- Alessio Bax
