Notes & Reviews:

Classics Today
As a technician, Berman is extraordinary in terms of sheer evenness, control, and rhythmic panache, yet he always channels his considerable craft toward musical ends. It's a relief, for example, to hear octave passages in Orage, Vallée d'Obermann, and the Dante Sonata shaped in sentence-like phrases rather than banged out. In turn, the Tarantella's repeated notes sound like quicksilver pearls rather than pellets.

Gramophone Magazine
The quality of the recording is first-rate, reproducing the whole of Berman's very wide dynamic range ... Berman's pianism is superb. Nothing about this artist has ever impressed me more than his ability to combine tremendous weight and body of tone with speed ... but finger-tip delicacy is equally impressive throughout the journey, not least when the imagery is aqueous.

BBC Music Magazine, April 2015
Here is the virtuoso in his youthful prime, playing with the authority of a god. Each piece is characterised with loving insight; the transcriptions perfectly catch Schubert's spirit.
