International Piano, March 2013

The gentles Eglogues benefit from Nguyen’s subtle touch, but there is surprising virtuosity here, too; the Impromptu-Valse absolutely sparkles under her fingers, while the Fantaisie-Polonaise is an effective marriage of Liszt and Raff. A stimulating disc. © International Piano

Gramophone, March 2013

The Scherzo and the grandiose Introduction and Fugue of the Album lyrique or the concluding Fantaisie-polonaise…come like a breath of fresh air. The Impromptu-valse, too, gives us a graceful salon style spun off with delightful ease by Nguyen, whose playing throughout, admirably recorded, is as warm, fluent and sympathetic as you could wish. © 2013 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone

MusicWeb International, December 2012

This is the last volume of Grand Piano’s three-CD survey of German-Swiss composer Joachim Raff’s piano music.

According to Grand Piano, these are all premiere recordings, and with almost 80 minutes of music, this must be considered a bargain for pianophiles even at full price. Its value is enhanced all the more by another top-class performance by Nguyen, her technical prowess augmented once again by an intuitive sense of expression and phrasing that brings this magical music to life.

As in previous volumes, sound quality is very good. © 2012 MusicWeb International Read complete review
