Notes & Reviews:

The outstanding young German pianist Joseph Moog makes his debut on Onyx with a superb disc of two great Russian piano concertos. Anton Rubinstein's fourth was once one of the most famous and popular concertos in the repertoire, and many of the major virtuosos performed this work into the early years of the 20th century. Rachmaninov's third, one of the most technically demanding concertos in the repertoire, has been an audience favorite since its premiere in the USA with the composer as soloist and Mahler conducting.

Daily Telegraph
Moog's is a talent worth watching.

Gramophone Magazine
This 24-year-old German pianist may occasionally sound more relentless than giving, though the chill wind he blows through even the most lyrically assuaging passages will seem authentic to some...Less generally, Moog is at his most interesting in the mercurial twists and turns he gives the cadenzas...There may be more affecting Rachmaninov Third Concertos on record...but it is certainly among the most formidable.

BBC Music Magazine
Moog makes easy sense of it all, his light, glittering touch deftly partnered by Nicholas Milton and his Ludwigshafen-based orchestra...it comes as no surpise that he chooses the more mercurial of the two cadenzas options, though he can pull out the big guns at the the central climax of the Intermezzo...Moog is a pianist of transcendental technique whose future should be well worth following.
