‘This is an extremely impressive debut recording. The playing of the Medtner sonata compares well with the very best recordings in the catalogue, including those by Hamelin, Tozer and Milne.’

Robert Beattie, MusicWeb International, 2018

‘Prokofiev’s […] Visions Fugitives Op 22 […] are impeccably chosen and presented. […] Good to have [Medtner’s] Sonata-Ballade […] in a performance rivalling that of Hamelin’s. Karpeyev’s grasp of the structure of the piece is remarkable, enabling a real sense of flow and beauty.’

Colin Clarke, International Piano, 2018

‘This is one of the finest discs of Russian piano music I have heard for sometime. The selection of music is one of the most intelligent in terms of programming from these five composers, and the performances by this young and intensely artistic virtuoso are wholly exceptional throughout. […] A true state-of-art release – detailed comments are unnecessary.’

Robert Matthew-Walker, Musical Opinion, 2018
