Notes & Reviews:
BBC Music Magazine, May 2012
Subdin, clearly on top form, treats Rachmaninov's variations like a set of diabolical virtuoso etudes, displaying transcendental virtuosity and kaleidoscopic keyboard colour. Sudbin nevertheless plays with all the necessary intimacy and sense of Romantic feeling in the lyrical sections...The Singapore Symphony accompanies perfectly, adding considerably to the colour and atmosphere of the work.
Gramophone Magazine, May 2012
This, as you would expect from Subdin, is a performance rich in detail and immaculately executed; furthermore, from the outset the ear is immediately taken by the superb sound quality.
The Telegraph, 5th April 2012
Sudbin's playing has terrific presence in this recording of Rachmaninov's Paganini Rhapsody. The blend of personality and stylistic perception that marks Sudbin's live performances is also manifest here. He plays with passion, drive, dexterity, discretion and dynamism...This is a top-flight, richly enjoyable performance.
MusicWeb International, May 2012
I enjoyed this CD and would recommend it to all enthusiasts of Isaac Albeniz's piano music. It presents an excellent balance of masterpieces, salon music of the very best quality and some unknown quantities. The playing is superb. Miguel Baselga is always sympathetic to this music - whether it is technically difficult or within the grasp of Grade 6-ers.
