Notes & Reviews:

Onyx offers two discs featuring two of today's up-and-coming young pianists. Sophie Pacini won the 2011 Prix Marguerite Dütschler of the Sommets Musicaux de Gstaad. In 2010, Pacini auditioned for Martha Argerich and a strong friendship developed between the two. Martha Argerich and Sophie Pacini worked together on the preparation for this, her début recording featuring concertos by Schumann and Mozart.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
The Mozart Jeunehomme Concerto sounds gorgeous. Ms Pacini's seductive timbres make every measure a treat for the ears, and the final Rondo is playful and exuberant. An impressive release for a first-timer.

Gramophone Magazine, June 2012
Pacini (b1991) is a protegee of Martha Argerich and it shows...There's a similar air of in-the-moment rhapsodising and no fear of giving the performance a boot up the backside if she catches her accompanists napping...Pacini clearly has something to say in this music and the technique to do so. What is lacking, perhaps, is ability to take the long view and tie up all the works' episodes into a unified whole.

BBC Music Magazine, August 2012
This debut reveals a sympathetic tone and an independent spirit which particularly suit the Schumann. Tempos are well-judged, with room for Pacini to explore the work's lyrical meditations. Certain issues between pianist and orchestra could have worked better...But Pacini is promising indeed, and one to watch for the future.
