“Pappano’s choice of the audacious young Italian pianist Beatrice Rana – a rising star if ever there was one – is right on the money…her ability suddenly to look inwards and to thoughtfully reflect on what is past and what is to come. She and Pappano communicate great kinship in the piece and that inexorable build to the cathartic peroration has impressive inevitability,” writes Gramophone Magazine.
Of the recording, The Guardian praises, “The piano always present but more questing than dominating, as soloist Beatrice Rana so poetically communicates.”
