"Koukl—fresh from his revelatory recordings for Naxos of Matinu’s complete piano music and concertos—proves himself a most sympathetic advocate for Tcherepnin’s music, whether on a small or large scale. It is instructive to compare his interpretations of the sonatas with the composer’s somewhat wayward ones: Koukl may not achieve the same fury in the First Sonata’s opening Allegro commodo but his pacing and structuring of the movement, while subtly different, is just as convincing; and his playing as a whole, especially in the Second Sonata, is much more precise. The sound...is top-notch."
Guy Rickards - International Piano magazine - January 2013
"...The Czech pianist Giorgio Koukl plays the programme of this CD with much commitment, very much alive and colourfully, and brings the freshness of Tcherepnin’s music to life. Each individual miniature and each set of the sonata is characteristic in colour, expression and suspense."

Recording of the Month
"...This disc is a simply brilliant introduction to anyone who hasn’t come across Tcherepnin before and who loves 20th century piano music. The works are played superbly by Giorgio Koukl who has already recorded all of Martinu’s piano works to great acclaim. A wonderful disc altogether! "
