Notes & Reviews:

"Yet another barnstorming disc from Marc-Andre Hamelin...this time completely transforming two works with reputations (as far as they have any) as overblown keyboard monsters into central masterpieces of the piano repertoire...Hamelin's combination of profound musicianship and dazzling technique gives him the space to project the music unencumbered by either physical limitations or received ideas...This is easily my piano recording of the year." -North, Fanfare

'Others have courageously fought the cause of this complex and neglected repertoire but few, if any, have brought to it such compelling fusion of temperament, intellect, and prodigious pianistic fluency' (Gramophone)

'This is a marvellous disc' (BBC Music Magazine)

'An embarrassment of riches. This is absolutely first-rate playing. Quite simply this is a stunning recital' (The Scotsman)

'I was enthralled' (Classic CD)

'I have never heard Reger played with greater imagination or persuasive eloquence. Hamelin seems to command an almost limitless range of keyboard colour. Those who have yet to be won over by Reger's keyboard music should start here' (Classic FM Magazine)

'This is playing such as you seldom hear. First-rate Hyperion recording; boring superlatives, as usual, for this least boring of contemporary keyboard giants' (Hi Fi News)
