Notes & Reviews:

For his latest solo album in a growing catalog of increasingly critically praised recordings for Signum Classics, Alessio Bax returns with a program of rich and evocative works for piano by Modest Mussorgsky and Alexander Scriabin. The Italian-born, NYC-based pianist Alessio Bax creates "a ravishing listening experience" with his lyrical playing, insightful interpretations, and dazzling facility. "His playing quivers with an almost hypnotic intensity," says Gramophone magazine, leading to what Dallas Morning News calls "an out-of-body experience." "... a pianist of refreshing depth." (International Piano) Alessio Bax plays Beethoven, released in 2014, was a Gramophone Editor's Choice: "'Even when compared to legendary performances of this sonata (Kempff, Richter, Gilels, Brendel, etc), this performance stands its ground in music to test the technique and intellect of even the greatest pianists."

Gramophone Magazine, October 2015
He shows himself a young aristocrat of the keyboard intent on purely musical ends. The disc is well recorded and lavishly presented.

MusicWeb International, September 2015
All-conquering performances in fabulous sound; quite possibly my Recording of the Year.
