"Sherbakov plays the whole programme with commitment and considerable finesse." BBC Music Magazine

 

"Sherbakov rises magnificently to the considerable technical and expressive demands of Respighi's piano writing" Fanfare


"Magnifique!" Pizzicato


"Alles wird ohne falsches Sentiment vorgetragen, mit erstaunlicher Tiefenschärfe..." Fono Forum


"...the extraordinary transparency and delineation of textures, no matter how complex; exceptionally clean attacks; a willingness to explore a wide variety of colors within a specific dynamic range, but without indulging in the merciless pounding of so many young players; a subtle command of the pianissimo playing; and impeccable musical manners... A marvellous recording, then, in every respect, and certainly an indispensable addition for any serious collection. " American Record Guide
