American Record Guide, March/April 2016
Both Ravel piano concertos are bold statements, rhythmically vital and endlessly colorful. Here they are ultra-refined, with an emotional subtlety. One is inclined to shout for Wang to stop the indulgences and get on with it. Partial redemption occurs in the Adagio of the Concerto in G. What a sharp contrast to the Rabotkina recording reviewed elsewhere in this issue.

FaurT's lovely Ballade is presented in its solo piano version. It works just as well without orchestra, and the notes mention that this was Wang's choice. It's the best thing on the program. Sound and notes are OK.
