Notes & Reviews:

Joseph Moog has established an enviable reputation as one of the most impressive virtuoso pianists of the young generation. His tastes embrace both the core repertoire and many unjustly neglected works, such as the Moszkowski Piano Concerto. This skillfully constructed piece is overflowing with memorable tunes, brilliant piano writing and beautiful orchestration elegantly realized by the Deutsche Radio Philharmonie Saarbrücken Kaiserslautern under Nicholas Milton. Moog couples the Moszkowski with the evergreen Grieg concerto, a work which never fails to impress.

The Telegraph, 20th June 2015
Moog surmounts the piece's formidable technical hurdles to make sumptuous, glistening and, indeed, memorable music. The disc would be worth having for the Moszkowski alone, but the Grieg acquires a freshness and new momentum in the clarity, panache and melodic warmth that Moog brings to it.

MusicWeb International, July 2015
I have to applaud this young firebrand's enthusiasm, energy and commitment. For those who savour accomplished pianism and musicianship, I would invite them to spend an hour basking in some terrific music-making. Definitely a winner.

Pianist Magazine, August/September 2015
Moog pairs the Grieg with the entertaining Moszkowski E major Concerto, an innovation that is worth five stars on its own. Other recordings of this concerto are cast aside by Moog's charm, Tlan and committed musicality. Orchestral support from the Deutsche Radio Philharmonie Saarsbrucken Kaiserslautern and Nicholas Milton is lively and the recording is clear and well focused.
