"Here you are made more than conscious of a pianist in rapt communion with Bach's spirit" -- Gramophone on Andrei Gavrilov

"McGregor's verve, energy and astounding technique are always at the service of the music and never vice versa. Her ability to inhabit so many sound worlds with the same intensity and commitment is profoundly impressive" -- BBC

"… extraordinary intimacy with the piano, which withholds no secrets of keyboard brilliance or expressive colouring from him, maximises the potential in the scoring …" -- The Times on Nikolai Demidenko

"The pianist who will define Bach performance on piano for years to come" -- Stereophile on Angela Hewitt
