“Ólafsson's performance has pace, but shines in its crystalline transparency of voices, lyrical in how split-second notes are connected, and above all exudes pure joy. ”

Tom Huizenga, NPR

“To these scores’ vast demands [Yuja Wang] brought both clarity and poetry. She played with heft but not bombast, sentiment but not schmaltz. Virtuosity on this level, in material this ravishing, is elevating to witness. ”

Zachary Woolfe, The New York Times
