The best of Pristine Classical
"One of the greatest I’ve ever heard"
"The touch is crystalline; the rubato subtle but ingenious, illuminating tiny phrases in the Beethoven that I’d never even noticed. Spivakovsky’s finger control is so powerful that he can produce three or four dynamics simultaneously. This pays glorious dividends in the Bach fugue, where you could almost be listening to separate organ pipes..." - Damian Thompson, The Spectator, 20 August 2015 [full article here]
