BARTOK, B.: Piano Music, Vol. 2 8.554718

Jenő Jandó is very well served by the Naxos engineers and gives far more than just serviceable accounts of this repertoire. His playing is thoroughly idiomatic…

Ottawa Citizen, December 2001

"A highly persuasive account of three major works, the Sonata, the Suite, op. 14 and the curiously neglected Seven Sketches, op. 9b."

Turok’s Choice, December 2001

"Jeno Jando starts an important new series devoted to Bartok's piano music with splendid performances of three important works: the Sonata, the Suite op.14, and Fifteen Hungarian Folksongs. He seems to have a special affinity for the playful pulsations of these pieces, as well as finding underlying connections in the sonata that make it quite dramatic."

Adrian Jack
BBC Music Magazine, November 2001

"You don't have to be Hungarian to play Bartok's music convincingly, but Jano Jando seems born to it and strikes the ideal balance between impact and clarity." Performance: 5 Stars, Sound: 5 Stars
