Markus Pawlik
BBC Music Magazine, June 2013

The Six Concert Etudes may average just three or four minutes apiece, but they pack a heroic punch with virtuosic flourishes, plenty of mood swings and moments of soaring melodic inspiration… © BBC Music Magazine

Penguin Guide, January 2009

The Six Concert Etudes, Op. 28, of 1916 are among the most technically demanding pieces in the repertoire. Markus Pawlik was still in his twenties when he recorded these pieces, and his playing is remarkable for its dazzling virtuosity, sensitivity, finesse and good taste. His dexterity and wonderful clarity of articulation in the D flat Etude are exceptional. His is a formidable talent, and we hope to hear much more of him. Decent recorded sound. Recommended with all enthusiasm.

Harold C. Schonberg
American Record Guide, April 2000

"The music is in competent hands. Pawlik is a fine pianist with a comprehensive technique... Excellent recorded sound."

Robert Cummings

"German-born Markus Pawlik, winner of several prestigious competitions including the Cortot in Milan, delivers knock-out performances that suggest he possesses the technique and interpretive smarts to play anything well. Naxos provides vivid sound, and the notes by George Ledin, Jr. are enlightening. We can only anxiously await volume two."
