"... A tremendous disc, one fully worthy of investigation..."
Colin Clarke - Fanfare - May/June 2013
“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. 9)
“[Weinberg] stands as a true innovator and original musical thinker whose music was as much an influence on Shostakovich as vice versa. This disc is another great addition to the increasing discography of this wonderful composer. His originality shines through at every turn. Murray McLachlan is a great exponent of 20th century and contemporary piano compositions. He has many first performances to his credit. This disc is further proof of his intelligent approach. It does wonderful service to the composer’s intentions. This is a disc to savour.”
Steve Arloff - MusicWeb-International.com
“Subtlety and depth ... material superbly developed with a greater sense of form [than the earlier Sonatas] ... perfectly handled by Murray McLachlan. What terrific playing there is from Murray McLachlan. [He] is ideal in this repertoire, playing with both sensitivity and bravura. These former Olympia recordings are excellent, with excellent piano tone and there are first rate notes by the late Per Skans. These beautifully produced discs are thoroughly recommended.”
