Notes & Reviews:

In her early twenties the Armenian pianist Nareh Arghamanyan, winner of the 2008 Montreal International Music Competition, belongs to the promising generation of today's fine pianists. The last season saw Nareh Arghamanyan making an impressive New York debut at the Frick collection as well as at San Francisco Performances, resulting in a re-invitation to their "Young Master Series". In concert she performed Saint-Saëns 5th concerto with the Winnipeg Symphony, the Saint-Saëns 2nd with I Musici de Montreal, and the "Emperor" concerto with the McGill Chamber Orchestra. Nareh Arghamanyan has appeared with the Mont Blanc Symphony France, Moscow Chamber Orchestra and the Armenian Philharmonic. In this new PentaTone release, she now turns her formidable talent towards the compositions of Rachmaninoff.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
If you enjoy Rachmaninoff piano music, you must get this. The Bonus DVD allows you to see Arghamanyan play the theme and first seven Corelli Variations and the Prelude in Csharp minor. The sound and presentation are unbeatable.

Gramophone Magazine, October 2012
It is impossible not to be won over by her charm in the video interview, in which her sincerity about finding the music's soul and sharing it with an audience is palpable. The trouble is that, in practice, her interpretative ideas sometimes come across as though she were trying too hard to heighten the music's emotional impact.
