Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, October 2012
Ogawa never forces the tone. She ensures that beauty, clarity and richness of sound are sustained at all costs, even in the most thunderous passages...Yet to suggest that her playing is cool, detached and uninvolving would be utterly misleading...By any standards, this is an outstanding release.

Gramophone Magazine, October 2012
The first movement cadenza, following pages of insouciant athleticism, conveys more vividly than most the image of someone trapped at the bottom of a dark well clawing their way up its side into the sunlight...The Malmo players under Owain Arwel Hughes offer acutely observed support throughout, with the important wind and brass solo writing subtly highlighted to gratifying effect.
