Album review on Gramophone

Thank you Gramophone for this great review of my new Romantic Piano Concerto album on Hyperion Records: “It’s hard to imagine it being better played than by these forces, Emmanuel Despax displaying a wide range of colours combined with an easy virtuosity ... It requires prodigious playing from soloist and orchestral musicians to make it sound as effortless as here, and that it does is tribute as much to conductor Eugene Tzigane as to Despax.”
