Review By CD Review,February 1993

"The degree of spontaneity and rapport between soloist, conductor and orchestra is reminiscent of the finest live performances"

Review By Classic CD,

"performances which leave most full-price versions standing"

Review By Classics,

"enormously stimulating and audacious"

Review By Rheinischer Merkur (Germany),January 2009

"Auch nur einen Teil dieser funf Klavier-konzerte zu beherrschen zeichnet einen Pianisten bereits aus; doch gar alle funf geradezu mustergultig aufzufuhren, das ist eine einzigartige Mut- un Kraftprobe. Eben die besteht der junge koreanische Pianist Kun Woo Paik ... glanzend (Even to be able to play just some of these five piano concertos makes a true pianist; but to perform all five of them in such an exemplary manner is a test of both courage and power - a test that the young Korean pianist Kun Woo Paik ... passes with flying colours)"

Review By Rick Phillips,CBC,March 2003

"Dollar for dollar, you'd be hard-pressed to find another complete set of the Prokofiev Piano Concertos that rivals this one. Kun Woo Paik is thrilling, the recorded sound is clean and vivid. And at budget price, or under $10 for each of the two CDs, available individually, it's a great bargain."

Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009
