"This is, in all the senses of the word, a brilliant release... This release is proof that the piano can easily stand on its own. But you need a pianist who can imitate the melodic line, the harmonies and, not least, play with a singing tone. Chinese pianist He Yue is just the right man for the job. He is tremendously talented and his piano tone is round and full, his fortissimos never hard. He is helped by a clear and transparent recorded sound... He Yue is at the very top level.
