The British Music Society is proud to announce the re-release on its own label - as a BMS Twenty-fifth Anniversay Special Edition - of pianist Michael Habermann’s renowned recordings of the piano works of Kaikhosru Sorabji (1892-1988), originally recorded over the period 1980-1995.
 

"[Habermann] has internalized this composer’s daunting aesthetic to unprecedented and possibly unsurpassed degrees."

Jed Distler - International Record Review


"Habermann is a splendid exponent of the pyrotechnical wizardry and the richness of these scores."

The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs - 3 Stars


"Habermann performs extraordinary technical and musical feats: these discs are a must for anyone interested in post-Romantic piano music."

Martin Cotton - BBC Music Magazine


"...there can be no doubting the extent of Habermann’s sympathies, nor the depth of his insight."

Richard Whitehouse - Gramophone magazine


"An essential set... to explore some of the most amazing pianistic composition of the 20th century."

Calum MacDonald - International Piano magazine
