Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine, December 2012
Bruckner could be impulsive and excitable, and Janowski certainly knows how to generate heat and excitement at the great releases. What a terrific surge he achieves into the coda of the first movement...Those special moments of communion that Bruckner achieves with his audience are beautifully identified by Janowski in the slow movement.

International Record Review
For anyone wanting the 1889 version of Bruckner's Third Symphony in very fine modern sound, this is a serious contender.

This is Martin Helmchen's second release Mozart's piano concertos on PentaTone. HiFi+Magazine wrote of the first release, 'Helmchen's technique is light yet authoritative and he brings a level of maturity and panache you'd expect to hear from a much more experienced player.'

MusicWeb International, 12th February 2014
What you have here is an acoustic well suited to Mozart, with a nice halo of resonance which doesn't echo eternally, but helps those legato lines and subtleties of dynamic and phrasing which make the simplest-seeming of music so effective.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
These are perfectly acceptable performances. Everything is in place. The playing - both pianist and orchestra - is fine.
