Penguin Guide, January 2009

Nishizaki’s spontaneous performance is a match for many by more famous names. With excellent backing from the Slovak Philharmonic under Kenneth Jean, her playing is individual yet unselfconscious. The Larghetto is poised and serene, and the finale buoyant. The two Romances are also very well played. The digital recording is excellent, with resonant, spacious orchestral sound. A genuine bargain.

Gramophone, March 1991

"Takako Nishizaki's silvery timbre and immaculate style are attractive and her lyrical phrasing very appealing, especially in the relaxed sections of the development of the first movement, while her reprise of the main theme after the Kreisler cadenza is a moment of real magic. ... her slow movement is classically pure. The digital recording is clear and truthful, well balanced, catching the ambience of the Bratislava Concert Hall quite convincingly."
