Notes & Reviews:

"...This concerto represents one of [Theodor Kullak's] creative successes. The music is skilfully crafted and well paced, and both taxes and rewards the soloist...Anyone who enjoys, say, the concertos of Chopin will enjoy Kullak's concerto...Virtuosity is the priority of [Alexander Dreyschock's] D minor Concerto, to which, in his accompanying note, the pianist Piers Lane ascribes "a champagne brilliance". ***** -BBC Music

'Delightful concertos. Kullak's in particular strikes me as a gem. Piers Lane plays both with dexterity and wit. A winner' (The Sunday Times)

'I can't stop playing the disk: the anticipation of a number of ear-tickling passages, notably in the Kullak, is too delicious for words. Effervescent, lightweight music transformed into entertaining and compelling minor masterpieces' (Classic CD)

'Performed with the kind of zestful spirit and communicative flair that his rightly won this series so many plaudits' (Gramophone)

'This is opne of the very finest of Hyperion's 'Romantic Piano Concertos' series (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)
