“With this third volume, David Korevaar continues on his journey of recording all of Liebermann’s works for the piano between 2001 and 2017 and the programme is, maybe, one of the most imaginative and representative of the composer’s immense gifts to write music that is modern and yet so beautiful and attractive…This is an adventurous undertaking, superbly performed and sumptuously annotated and recorded.”  |  full review

Review: Frédéric Chopin: Piano Music; David Korevaar, piano – MSR Classics, Gramophone, December 2016

“Given David Korevaar’s penchant for putting together interesting and cohesive concert programmes, it’s not surprising that his all-Chopin disc embraces many moods and styles. Indeed, Korevaar’s first selection, the C minor Nocturne, Op 48 No 1, runs the emotional gamu between its stark mezza voce opening and the middle section’s tumultuous octave outbursts, helped by the pianist’s full-bodied sonority and huge dynamic range…

Korevaar sheds fresh and often unconventional light on the G minor (First) Ballade. The opening theme’s myriad repetitions markedly differ, yet are inevitably unified, while the pianist brings uncommon melodic clarity to the rapid fioritura and heroic virtuoso patterns…This revelatory interpretation alone is worth the disc’s price.”  | full review
