Notes & Reviews:

In her early twenties Armenian born Nareh Arghamanyan, winner of the 2008 Montreal International Music Competition, belongs to the promising young generation of today's fine pianists. On this her first concerto recording on PentaTone she performs Listz with exuberance and precision beyond her age. A US tour will coincide with the release of this album.

BBC Music Magazine, February 2013
These interpretations...display some obvious strengths: the technique of this young Armenian-born pianist is beautifully fluent, giving her playing a freedom that is not at all slick or perfunctory, and she also offers likeable, rounded tone and more than reasonable firepower. But you do also need the imagination to come up with individual things to say and there's too little evidence of this.

Gramophone Magazine, February 2013
Here is playing of real poetic poetic allure bathed in a golden piano tone.
