Perhaps it is only necessary to make an analogy with Rubinstein’s Valse nobles, with Cortot’s Jeux d’eau, and Michelangeli’s Gaspard de la Nuit, to convey to the reader what kind of playing this extraordinary disc presents
[igor kipnis, schwann/opus]

Yet both pianists [Casadesus and Gieseking] sound almost routine compared with the finest Gaspard I know, by Sigurd Slåttebrekk.
[charles timbrell, international piano quarterly]

– A musical wizard who out-Giesekings Gieseking at his own game.
[john bell young, american record guide]


– [a] revelatory issue
[charles hopkins, international record review]

– this is one of the most remarkable Schumann recordings to have come my way

[adrian jack, bbc music magazine]

One of the most charismatic players I have ever heard

(2 SACD Surround + Stereo)

I know it’s silly to talk about ‘the best’ in a work so often recorded, but if this performance (of the Grieg concerto) isn’t the finest of them all, it’s so exceptional that it will make you forget about any others.

– An exceptional release, by any standard
[david hurwitz, classics today]
