Review By Brent Auerbach,American Record Guide,November 2011

It is well worth the cost…expect that you won’t hear anyone playing this music more energetically and powerfully than [Raekallio] does.

Review By James Inverne,Gramophone,October 2011

As Bryce Morrison points out, there is abundant and big-name competition in these works. But how wonderful to welcome back these fine performances from Helsinki-born pianist Matti Raekallio. He teaches at Juilliard these days, but his students could do worse than avidly study this reissue from Ondine.

It would be wrong to say that he makes light of Prokofiev’s technical demands. Rather, he relishes them, finding the poetry through them, attacking them with determination and, when required, a light touch.
