Press Quotes


If the Chandos coupling appeals, you should buy with confidence. The Hyperion collection of all the works for piano and orchestra is more logical but, with the prominent piano part in Petrushka, very ably performed by Bavouzet here, the new recording has its own logic too. Performance, recording and presentation of both are first-class.

The Observer

Bavouzet, who won a 2014 Gramophone award for his Prokofiev concertos, brings energy and precision to this repertoire, whether in the serialism of Movements or the majestic, extrovert flair of Pétrouchka. It’s hard to imagine better.

Financial Times

Bavouzet is sprightly and concentrated in ‘Concerto’ and ‘Movements’, giving them a rhythmic lift.

BBC Music Magazine

The São Paulo Symphony Orchestra under Yan Pascal Tortelier proves a remarkably deft partner, matching so that the numerous accents, twists and turns of the music occur as if the orchestra were an extension of Bavouzet's piano... there is much to admire and these pieces work well together.
