“Perfect Piano Sound. Almost better than live”


Stereoplay - August 2003

“There is a feline grace to her phrasing”

Phil Muse

Atlanta Audio Society - October 2003

“…this is one of the best Beethoven Sonata recordings I’ve ever heard! Ms. Kodama’s playing is superb throughout – her timing, phrasing and intonation are absolutely drop-dead gorgeous – every aspect of the playing here is absolutely of the highest order. The recorded sound is every bit the match – this may be the very best recording of solo piano music I own, and the multichannel SACD offers a most convincing illusion of the piano right there in the room.”

Tom Gibbs

Audiophile Audition - September 2003

“…this is a very full-bodied sound - marvellously weighted in the bass- and simply presented”

Ivor Humphreys

Gramophone - Awards Issue 2003

“Her “Appasionata” …is even more fiery than Pollini’s, with her Steinway sounding particularly masculine in this Dutch recording. She also plays Op. 53 (“Waldstein”), whose prestissimo Rondo holds no terrors for her and Op. 81a (“Les adieux”) whose C-minor farewell movement is most expressive in her hands. This is one of those “Super Audio CDs” that works fine on a conventional player.”
