Notes & Reviews:

"[Olga Kern's] all-Russian compact disc, including the awesome Rachmaninov Second Piano Sonata and Balakirev's 'Islamey', is breathtaking for its bold expression, fearsome technical prowess and rich palette of colors." - Seattle Post-Intellegencer "A forceful and stirring performance by Van Cliburn winner Olga Kern... altogether a most exciting piano recital by an exciting new performer." - Audiophile Audition

The Gramophone
Sheer talent does not come more transparently and, to top it all, harmonia mundi's sound is of demonstration refinement and quality.

bbc.co.uk - John Armstrong
Manze and Egarr's interpretative licence allows the music to breathe, to come to life in a way you rarely hear in Handel's Sonatas.
