‘A brilliant stunt, and an artistic triumph … Zimerman proves himself a great conductor as well as a pianist in Chopin's grand anniversary tour … The pianist is his usual self: atmospherically intense, with every phrase exquisitely turned.’ - Gramophone

‘Credit has to be given to the sound engineers who allow the orchestra to play with unbridled power without inhibiting the piano.’ - Classic FM (Chopin)

‘… 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
