Gramophone Magazine, January 2016
There's a tremendous maturity in terms of the sweep of the concerto's opening movement, albeit coupled with an infectious glee... a sense of exploration permeates all the performances here, too; the first-movement cadenza is particularly imaginative in that regard.

BBC Music Magazine, March 2016
This Polish-Canadian pianist may be just 20, but his account of the concerto's opening movement is judicious, suggesting a coiled energy beneath the surface tenderness, and taking advantage of the music's intermittent licence to dream; his touch has a chaste beauty, with no hint of histrionics... a gentle reminder of the artistry which first put Lisiecki in the limelight three years ago.
