Martin Anderson
Punch, March 2002

Marco Polo brought out a CD of Leopold Godowsky's Piano Sonata - a wonderful, sprawling, heart-warming, epic late-Romantic canvas, 50 minutes in length - by Konstantin Scherbakov, a phenomenal pianist... Scherbakov's playing is big-toned, generous, powerfully assured."

Jeremy Nicholas
International Record Review, February 2002

"The sonata has had to wait until now, 90 years after its publication, for a recorded performance that does it justice ... The more I listen to the first movement in Scherbakov's revelatory account, the more my respect and affection for the work grows, with its heartfelt emotion and string of memorable ideas... The finale's Larghetto lamentoso is a passage of great beauty played caressingly by Scherbakov ... The four early miniatures which complete the disc are charming salon works..."
