Notes & Reviews:

"Gringolts combines virtuosic energy with security of tone in the Tchaikovsky...but it is with the Shostakovich in which he really shines. His is a gripping performance from beginning to end, bringing poignancy and emotional commitment to the two slow movements, a nocturne and passacaglia, and biting intensity to the scherzo and 'Burlesque' finale. Fantasy, control and imagination add up to an auspicious debut indeed." ***** -Matthew Rye, BBC
