Notes & Reviews:

Now in the fifth decade of an illustrious international career, Misha Dichter traces his musical heritage to the two great pianistic traditions of the 20th century: the Russian Romantic School as personified by Rosina Lhevinne, and the German Classical style that was passed on to him by Aube Tzerko, a pupil of Artur Schnabel.

BBC Music Magazine, January 2012
Dichter slides easily and without a hint of pretension from Viennese schwung to melting radiance in the Waltzes; the Op. 116 Fantasies and Handel Variations are refreshingly straightforward, affectionate and genuine.
