Here is what music critics said about the recording:
Andrew McGregor, on his weekly BBC Radio 3 CD Review programme, describing Kapustin's music as "a deliriously joyful synthesis of jazz and classical composition", said: "There is something about Brain's playing that really taps well into the complexity and inventive joy of the music in the Preludes and also in Kapustin's Fantasy Sonata. I really enjoyed this." Listen to the full review
Andrew Clark, in the Financial Times, wrote: "The interpreter needs a non-academic sense of freedom as well as a
dazzling technique, and Brain meets both demands in a performance that should win Kapustin new admirers."
Guy Weatherall wrote on his blog that the composer, a fine pianist himself, has recorded most of his own music, "yet in this new disc, Brain is every bit as dazzling and persuasive, and significantly better recorded".
