Notes & Reviews:

"This classic first recording of the 14 piano sonatas makes Medtner's star soar into the ascendant. Superlatively played and presented, it effects a radical and triumphant transition from years of indifference to heady acclaim...Such heavensent performances will set you journeying far and wide, their eloquence and calibre accentuated by Hyperion's sound, by clarity, warmth and refinement..." -BM, Gramophone

'Superlatively played and presented. Such writing positively demands a transcendental technique and a burning poetic commitment, a magical amalgam achieved with delicacy, drama and finesse by Marc-André Hamelin' (Gramophone)

'Ce coffret est un monument de l'histoire du disque, comme il n'en pas eu beaucoup depuis une décennie' (Le Samedi Culturel, France)

'A set that does deserve celebration. Indispensable to all lovers of Medtner's subtle and enriching art' (Gramophone)

'I was breathless with admiration' (Hi-Fi News)

'Hamelin and everyone involved with the production of this release deserves the highest praise' (Fanfare, USA)

'Merci de contribuer aussi magistralement à la redécouverte de Nikolai Medtner' (Répertoire)
