Notes & Reviews:

Two of the most popular Russian Romantic Piano Concertos on one CD! Since Sigfridsson won First Prize, Chamber Music Prize, and Audience Prize at the Beethoven-Wettbewerb Competition in 2005, it has become abundantly clear that he is one of the most impressive pianists of the younger generation. Evergreen repertoire with broad popular appeal.

Gramophone Magazine
Clear-sighted and musicianly... Sigfridsson eases his way through both works with a deftness that belies their difficulties. Conceived as large-scale chamber works rather than examples of opulent late Romanticism, both concertos suffer from an element of caution or circumspection.
