Peter Burwasser
Fanfare, March 2014

These are elegant, smart performances of these familiar works. Nishimoto-Neubert…offers a bracing lucidity of texture accompanied by a ringing tone that makes her playing alert and even exciting. Tempos, I hasten to add, are never rushed. This is not an uncommon approach to Bach as played on a modern piano, but those accustomed to a more sentimental way with these great late piano gems from Brahms may at first find her manner distant. Repeated listening justifies her style; the music is carefully constructed so as to describe a complex and dramatically sculpted vision. It needn’t be milked for more, and once you hear Nishimoto-Neubert’s way with it you may not want to go back to your favorite old mushy performance. © 2014 Fanfare Read complete review
