Reviews For Rarities of Piano Music 2015
Pianist - Marius Dawn
…must be heard to be believed. & informative & well written bookelet notes. *****
Music Web Int - Jonathan Woolf
Always expect the unexpected from the Husum Piano Festival, now approaching 30 years of galvanizing adventure. & There's only one Cypien Katsaris, and if he doesn't get your foot tapping, you're dead.
Gramophone - Jeremy Nicholas
The track brevity of each Husum compilation has two advantages, it demonstrates that a disc of recital highlights to be entertaining as well as spiritually norishing AND that pianists as much as their audience can have a mutually rewarding time going of piste.
