"It is feel-good music of exquisite quality"

Pizzicato Magazine, January 21st, 2023

"With an informative booklet note by the composer and first-class sound, this Somm release can be warmly recommended to anyone interested in exploring Borenstein's work."

"Iruzun's delivery of the complex solo part is most persuasive, and Borenstein's conducting brings vivid playing from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra"

"It is difficult to imagine the performance by Iruzun and I musicanti could be bettered"
Gramophone, March 2023

"Recorded at the venue of Henry Wood Hall, London, one hopes that Sir Henry’s Festival, the Proms ~ his great legacy ~ will find a half-an-hour slot for Nimrod Borenstein’s deeply-felt and exquisitely written and orchestrated concerto."

The Quarterly Review, January 30th, 2023

"Notes fall like raindrops, dripping delicately, later torrentially, before returning to a light shower"

BBC Music Magazine, March 22nd, 2023

"The compositions of Nimrod Borenstein across the board, regardless of genre, are exceptionally brilliant, multicolored and cleverly constructed." 

"The fact that Nimrod Borenstein is not only an inspired composer but also an inspiring conductor is evident from the Piano Concerto, which exudes great authority."

"In Shirim, the technical obstacles are partly kept within limits, which certainly makes a number of the eighteen pieces accessible to the more gifted amateur pianist.  Without exception, they are fascinating atmospheric images that result in glowing character pieces.""

Opus klassiek, February 2023

"To conclude, this is a highly rewarding album with some exceptional music-making"

The High Arts Review, February, 2023

"It’s dizzying, exciting music ... Looking for an entertaining, melodic contemporary piano concerto? Start here"

The Arts Desk, March, 2023

"Nimrod Borenstein is rapidly establishing himself amongst the most recorded of contemporary composers in the UK"

Richard Whitehouse, Gramophone, March 2024

"this is a breathtaking experience"
"a worthy addition to Borenstein’s impressive discography"

Peter J. Rabinowitz, Fanfare, May 2024

"Born in 1969, Nimrod Borenstein has been frequently commissioned and performed internationally, and also enjoys a busy conducting career. Judging from this disc’s contents, Borenstein certainly knows how to write idiomatically and effectively for piano.
Pianist Tra Nguyen seems to be an ideal advocate for this repertoire. Pianists seeking technically challenging yet musically accessible contemporary repertoire that is both virtuosic and lyrical at the same time will want to check out Nimrod Borenstein"

Jed Distler,, August 2023

"This attractive album presents 12 Etudes and other short pieces by the composer Nimrod Borenstein. They are colourful, unapologetically tonal, mostly upbeat, and skilfully composed for the instrument. Tra Nguyen plays with nuance and virtuosity and gets a larger-than-life recording. © 2024 American Record Guide"

Jack Sullivan, American Record Guide, January 2024

"Nguyen's playing is first-rate. She delivers exciting, engaged performances. They made me want to revisit this release time and again. Highly recommended, both for the quality of the music, and the quality of the performances."

Ralph Graves, Charlottesville Classical, September 2023
