Daniel Morrison
Fanfare, January 2017

The recorded sound on this release is very good, notable, like the pianist’s playing, for exceptional clarity. The piano tone is for the most part very well defined…

This disc reveals Glinka to be an interesting, engaging, and accomplished composer for the piano, and the fine performances by Tôn Nũ’ Nguyệt Minh provide much enjoyment. © 2017 Fanfare Read complete review

American Record Guide, January 2017

[Nguyet Minh] makes considerable music out of some of the rather mundane variations and knocks the socks off of the Lisztian variations on a theme from I Capuleti e I Montecchi. The Nocturnes are very much in the style of Glinka’s teacher, John Field; and that gives Nguyet Minh a chance to put her phrasing on display.

…the performances are first rate. This is an essential foundation for Russian piano music collections. © 2017 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

Audiophile Audition, November 2016

Vietnamese artist Ton Nu Nguyet Minh has the credentials to perform Glinka…

Mozart serves as the model for Glinka’s 1824 Variations on an Original Theme in F Major. Chromatic and daring harmonically, the music takes us into f for an affecting Adagio, which Minh sells effectively. © 2016 Audiophile Audition Read complete review

Gramophone, October 2016

The reason to delight in these admittedly thin pickings is entirely down to the effervescent, stylish and sensitive playing of the Vietnamese pianist Ton Nu Nguyet Minh. On a nicely recorded disc, her deft, lightly pedalled touch in the florid passagework reminded me of Howard Shelley, and that’s saying something: able to make much from very little, as well as the best possible case for Glinka’s uneven output. © 2016 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone
