Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine

"Though not naturally drawn to the piano like some, Tchaikovsky did, however, write and arrange a large amount of music for the instrument. The 10 discs take us from early works to orchestral works, via sonatas, songs and oddities. The Nutcracker is a highlight, taking up all of disc nine, as is the Children’s Album and Dumka: Russian Rustic Scene."
