Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, June 2012
One of the most compelling accounts of the Second Sonata that I've ever heard. In lesser hands, this work's outer movements can so easily sound relentless and even monotonous...Here, however, Wallin and Pontinen extract the maximum variety of expression and articulation out of the material, almost as if they are restoring the vibrant colours to an ancient painting.

Gramophone Magazine, May 2012
He captures ideally the turbulence of the First Sonata, so reminiscent of the sound world of the First Piano Trio, and the irresistable drive of the Second Lebhaft. The balance with the piano of Roland Pontinen seems natural.
