Notes & Reviews:
BBC Music Magazine, July 2012
The compelling centre of this feast is the playing of the 18-year-old Pascal Roge. Mature, lyrical, symphonic and pianistically profound, his Sonata is a marvel.
There are so many super-pianists about nowadays that no boy or girl is likely to make the grade without being able to rattle off Liszt's B minor Sonata faultlessly at the age of 18. The point is how well? Pascal RogT was 18 when he made this record last December: he can not only play this transcendentally difficult sonata, he gives it one of the most intelligent and Sensitive interpretations anybody could hope to hear.
Gramophone Magazine (AnnTes de PFlerinage)
He attains a remarkably sustained intensity with some pages [of the 'Dante' Sonata] and the whole is extremely well integrated.
Gramophone Magazine (Kars)
Instead of storming classical heights with jejune interpretations, [this recital disc] is content to offer evidence of pianistic virtuosity, musical sensitivity and an interest in music going beyond the reachme-downs of the standard repertoire ... The pieces and playing make the record very desirable.
