Notes & Reviews:

After a year off the concert platform, Xiayin Wang, a specialist in the romantic repertoire, presents a new recording of two relatively little-played piano concertos: No. 2 by Tchaikovsky, in its much lesser-known yet extremely virtuosic original version, and Khachaturian's. The disc also marks the 125th anniversary of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, here conducted by its Music Director, Peter Oundjian.

Gramophone Magazine, May 2016
From the first bar, you know that this brilliant Chinese-American pianist is the business...she leads from the front throughout to exhilarating effect...If you do not have a recording of the Tchaikovsky, then this is up with the very best; likewise the Khachaturian. Paired together, it's a no-brainer.

MusicWeb International, 6th June 2016
Fiery and dramatic performances. A superb disc in every respect.

International Piano, September 2016
Wang... is unfailingly fleet and musical, superbly partnered, realistically balanced and with all the benefits of modern sounds.
