From the beginning of the Schumann “Carnaval” – sunny and grim at the same time – to its dreamy “Dedication” (the arrangement of “Widmung” by Liszt): on every track of this wonderful Genuin CD, young pianist Lilian Akopova transports us into a Romantic world of fantasy. The pianist makes her mark with distinct tempos, an infinitely differentiated pianistic touch and a sure sense of dramatic suspense. After winning First Prize at the Vianna Da Motta International Piano Competition, Anne-Sophie Mutter said “her virtuoso and pianistic capabilities are very impressive.” This Schumann and Mendelssohn disc clearly demonstrates that her artistry goes far beyond these possibilities!

"The quality of the recording and its presentation are commensurate with the high musicianship of this release."
klassik-heute.de; Sixtus König; 17.11.2010

"Insomma, l´artigianato musicale d´alta classe indispensabile per fare bella figura davanti alle giurie, con il valore aggiunto di una musicalità piacevole e raffinata."
Review in the italian magazine Musica, issue 224, March 2011.
