From the German recital tour newspaper review
"Audiences were simply astounded and overwhelmed by the breadth, depth, sublimeness and transcendental scale of this well-connected, fresh musical dialogue."
“It is inevitable that two people with such distinct characters and musicality, who have a great understanding of each other, are bound by solid teamwork, and produce truly happy performances. For more than 10 years, the four-handed dialogue in a limited space has shown the audience a deep and deep harmony of hearts."
“The audience was overwhelmed by his wide and rich expressiveness, lyrical, and sometimes gentle and delicate brushstrokes on the piano, and sometimes powerful and divine reverberations from the earth.”
