"... Avie’s recorded piano sound is state of the art, so the wonderful performances are matched by recorded quality. Barnatan is moving into the world-class arena with this kind of playing, and one hopes that his career will continue to grow..."

"... Though he’s no longer one of the youngest pianists (he was born in 1979), Inon Barnatan is one of the finest musicians. His new CD shows piano playing of the highest order. You don’t notice his fingerwork, you simply immerse yourself in the sound he produces from the brilliantly recorded Steinway, and you know there are no technical limits to what he can do..." *****

"... “La Valse”. At this point I had to conclude that Barnatan was not just a good, or even excellent, pianist. Anyone who can give a performance of “La Valse” like this one is, at least potentially, a great pianist. So go and get it. Even if you buy the disc just for this, it’s a performance without price."

"This is an account of Gaspard to live with as as for its technical assurnce as for the unsettling atmosphere of unease and malevolence with which Israeli pianist Inon Barnatan infuses all three movements ... Beautifully voiced piano, very well recorded."
