“Some of these concertos have been recorded previously, but never with such authority (or ready availability) as to challenge the supremacy of this set. Highly recommended.”
David Hurwitz, classicstoday.com

” … Korstick’s playing is simply wonderful. In every movement of every piece he clearly captures the right feel for the music and reveals his usual fastidious technique, articulation and phrasing.”

“These performances must be considered definitive … Korstick, though not particularly identified with this kind of repertoire, appears to have made a supreme effort to master and project Milhaud’s sound world with the utmost precision and sympathy. A major accomplishment, consummately carried off, and a double CD no collector of 20th-century music can afford to pass up.”
Fanfare, USA

“Michael Korstick is évidemment la cheville ouvrière de cette entreprise, assumant vigoureusement la puissance, voir la brutalité de cette musique aussi bien que son élégance déliée, sa fluidité aussi bien que sa percussivité. Une réalization de première importance pour l’histoire de la musique française.”

“Once again Korstick proves that his piano playing is beyond criticism. His interpretative stylistic confidence is just as captivating as his versatile and sensitive playing, which never turns naked virtuosity into an end in itself, although the Fourth Piano Concerto in particular virtually challenges this.”
