Laurence Vittes
Gramophone, January 2012

This is…an intriguing recital: Pronin puts Milstein’s famous tour de force through its paces and finds dark corners in the sumptuous beauties of Ysaÿe. Pronin even scores by playing both parts in the Prokofiev; the out-of-body experience arouses the music’s emotional content in an attractively unsettling way…Pronin attaches ‘extramusical imagery’ to the piece, and writes of ‘dancing snowflake patterns, shiny and brilliant yet quite delicate’. It’s a window on Prokofiev’s Russian soul, and Pronin’s own. © 2012 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone

V. Vasan, September 2011

…Pronin’s command of the music is quite exciting to listen to. …Pronin makes the piece his own, creating his own dramatic interpretation. His fierce, attacking style returns in the second part of the piece, but his tremendous energy somehow seems to allow one to overlook the technique and admire his musicianship.
