Penguin Guide, January 2009

Idil Biret takes the opening movement very briskly and impetuously, but the performance then settles down and is sensitive and well characterized, especially the closing Golliwog’s Cakewalk. Good recording and recommendable couplings too.

Penguin Guide, January 2009

This is perhaps the highlight of Idil Biret’s apt triptych of suites of piano music for children. She has the full measure of Tchaikovsky’s two dozen vignettes and plays them all with affection and charm. They range from miniature portraits of Mama, Dolly, a Lark and even a witch (Baba-Yaga) to a Toy Soldier’s March and on Organ-grinder’s Song, as well as folksy pieces from Italy, France and Germany and Russia’s own Kamarinskaya, The recording cannot be faulted.
