"...an ideal realisation of these exquisite dances, the likes of which I never dreamt of hearing. <...> these performances are the most beautiful and strikingly original I’ve heard." Gramophone

 

"[Pavel Kolesnikov] displays complete poetic freedom of a sort ideal for approaching Chopin's mazurkas … a refreshing way of letting us hear these well-known miniature masterpieces, this is a notable addition to the huge Chopin discography" BBC Music Magazine

 

"The world seems to be awash in brilliant young Russian pianists just now, but Pavel Kolesnikov stands apart. His recording     for Hyperion of Chopin's intimate dances is daringly original—a revelation"
