Michael Ullman
Fanfare, March 2018

Martin Ivanov is a Bulgarian pianist still in his 20s, and this impressive rendition of all the Chopin waltzes is his debut recording. His talent is evident from the beginning: At least as recorded here he has a huge sound and a technique which he uses in performances that are grand, rhythmically buoyant, and often subtle. He sounds as if he is not just playing, but celebrating. © 2018 Fanfare Read complete review
