“She unfailingly conveys the singing line, while effortlessly letting us hear multiple voices in a gorgeous sonority. Furthermore, this is Chopin of great maturity and wisdom. ” -Dave Saemann

“His sense of time, his sense of harmony, above all his structural originalities are immensely sophisticated and daring. Richard-Hamelin seemed to be aware of the total Chopin – not just melting us with liquid line after liquid line of Chopin’s famous melodies, but exposing inner voices and harmonic twists in both left and right hands, and illuminating Chopin’s extraordinary structural gambits, especially in his Third Sonata which closed the program. He is an artist firmly on a unique and original path.” -Robert Harris, The Globe and Mail

“… Bavouzet is the best living Debussy interpreter. His big tone and sonorous interpretation is a far cry from the perfumed and limpid Debussy served up by so many lesser-gifted pianists. This is, in the best sense of the word, unfussy and direct piano playing. There might be individual recordings from pianists, mostly from the bygone age, that have their champions, but as a complete set of Debussy, nobody today can touch Bavouzet.” – Pianist, December 2012

Sergei Babayan

“Babayan favors a playing style that speaks to the senses, to the range of his love for the music, which is unsurpassed. An enthusiastic multi-instrumentalist, tirelessly studying the works of his predecessors as if they were his contemporaries, he does not hide himself from this nearly obsessive research of a spiritual music, which comes close to magic.” -L’Actualité
