Osborne's dazzling playing and excellent booklet notes get top billing. So do Hyperion's gorgeous sonics. Buy this disc and be thoroughly entertained. International Record Review
Nikolai Kapustin Piano Music

EMPFEHLUNG, KLASSIK HEUTE
CLASSIC CD DISC OF THE MONTH
Engaging, often witty, jazz-inspired works that are highly recommended, especially to lovers of Gershwin or Billy Mayerl
Kapustin's synthesis is well-crafted, has some exciting moments and generally exudes a breezy élan. It is also superbly performed by Osborne.
BBC Music Magazine
Everything on this surprisingly sunny disc is full of ear-catching delights; and it’s hard to imagine a listener who won’t be captivated. The performances are every bit as attractive as the music. In sum, we have a major new pianist on our hands
It’s hard to imagine it better done. Recommended
International Piano Quarterly

Exudes great energy and dazzling brilliance. Outstanding performances by Steven Osborne. An invigorating disc by any standards
