Notes & Reviews:

"Zimerman has a big, muscular sound that holds up well against the Chicago Symphony's big, muscular sound; the both are well suited to the percussive Concerto 1. Andsnes has a richer, more burnished tone that complements the sleek gleam of the Berlin Philharmonic in the more mercurial Concerto 2. Miss Grimaud's gentler, less pounding approach to her instrument and the more subdued sound of the London Symphony make for a rewarding Concerto 3.", Hansen, American Record Guide
