‘Krystian Zimerman is a perfectionist who thinks twice before making a discographical move. Thus it comes as no surprise that he imbues the piano parts of Rachmaninov’s first two concertos with remarkable technical refinement and finesse … there's no denying the care and formidable musicianship that distinguishes Zimerman and Ozawa’s masterful teamwork, nor DG’s stunning sonics.’ - BBC Music Magazine

‘… no pianist alive today lavishes more care and attention to detail on every performance he gives…’ -  The Guardian

‘There are few pianists today who manage to combine Zimerman's mystique - created largely by his relative scarcity on the concert platform - with such a poetic naturalness in performance. You get the impression that nothing would induce him to give a performance of anything unless it has been scrupulously studied and absorbed so that every last detail has been considered and thought about.’ - Gramophone
