Notes & Reviews:

A carefully balanced program based entirely upon slow movements (Bach, Beethoven, Kurtág, Knaifel, Ligeti) developed with András Keller and producer Manfred Eicher.

The Observer, 5th April 2015
Highlights are the hypnotic pastoral from Schnittke's Piano Quintet with Alexei Lubimov, and a sequence of Kurtßg miniatures. Good for a quiet night in.

BBC Music Magazine, August 2015
It's all expertly played, even if the Bach is more Romantic in its use of vibrato than might be expected nowadays.
