“Here [is volume 10] of Divine Art’s ever-enterprising Russian Piano Music Series. Murray McLachlan’s performance, here as elsewhere, is brawny, relentlessly energetic and fully committed..”
Michael Round - International Piano magazine
“Soviet piano music almost on a par with Shostakovich and Prokofiev, admirably played by this splendidly gifted pianist. Virtually flawless playing and recording "” * * * * *
James Palmer - Musical Opinion – joint review with vol. 10
“Formidable playing from Murray McLachlan. In the wrong hands this music could lose the flow, momentum and sense of structure but McLachlan maintains all of this superbly. Murray McLachlan is ideal in this repertoire, playing with both sensitivity and bravura. These beautifully produced discs are thoroughly recommended.”
"...Virtually flawless playing and recording." *****
James Palmer - Musical Opinion
"Over the last 10 to 15 years or so, there has finally been an overdue resurgence of interest in the music of Mieczyslaw Weinberg. His captivating symphonies have been well served in excellent recordings recently, so now it’s reassuring to see the same care being applied to his piano music output... The Russian Piano Music Series of recordings on the Divine Art label has been a pleasure to follow, with one great release after another, and this 9th volume in the series is no exception. It’s proven to be my favorite yet. It may very well set the bar high for future Weinberg interpreters."
