Piano Forum (Russia) - October 2018
"the exceptional level of interpretation and the irreproachable musical taste of the pianist do not spoil the integrity of the image: they "color" it more (...) We also want to emphasize the flexibility and the naturalness of the phrasing, the attention paid to the silences that allow the entire musical fabric to "breathe", subtly highlighting the individuality of each new theme and its smallest changes, as well as the keen attention of the pianist brought to polyphony. (...) The second solo album of Arthur Ancelle, monographic this time, clearly pursues the line of research he started with the Ballades de Chopin and the works of Dutilleux (2015), and demonstrates the maturity and depth of a musician of great intelligence and brilliant humor."

American Record Guide (USA) - September/October 2018
"These performances are unusual but brilliant and highly entertaining. (...) In recent reviews I expressed some reservations about repeats and ornaments in Haydn and Mozart, but such qualms evaporate in view of Ancelle’s spiritedness and invention. (...) It is remarkable how resilient Haydn’s music is to such an approach. This reveals much about its character, the full extent of which has perhaps been hidden up to now. (...) This French pianist plays with splendid technique (...) I look forward to the next adventure of this audacious artist."
Crescendo (Belgium) - September 2018
"she offers that clear and tasty sound, a subtle game of pedals and perfect breathing, essential qualities in this repertoire (...) this is a "devilishly" interesting record to discover"

Portraits de famille
Philippe Cassard is enthusiastic about Arthur Ancelle's Haydn : « It had been a long time since I had not heard Haydn played this way ... A voluble, sparkling, fine, extremely lively and mobile playing, we let ourselves be carried away by this intoxication of the arabesque, of the unexpected, it really is theater here, and this way he has, full of irony, to bring out characters, with the bend of an accent or a silence … »

Bachtrack - September 2018
"Sometimes united as a single performer, sometimes dialoguing and bringing a certain relief to the ensemble, the two pianists offer a rich palette of effects, thanks first of all to the mastery of nuances: pianissimos set so that the addition of two keyboards do not sound louder than one; fortissimos, on the contrary, of an impressive power." ★★★★★

"Berlinskaya is at her best, with vibrant, spontaneous, and enchanting playing."
Fanfare (USA) - July 2018
"Berlinskaya has a strong musical personality, supported by a technique that can execute any expressive choice she desires and an artistic maturity that refines her bold musical instincts. (...) she is a true pianistic personality: technically superb, artistically mature, consistently expressive, and subtly unique. I look forward to becoming increasingly familiar with her work. (...) Highly recommended."

Who better than Haydn can celebrate music on June 21st ?
RESMUSICA (FRANCE) - JUNE 2018
« Nikolai Medtner’s tenth sonata here in a sumptuous interpretation (...) A Ravel of a very original conception, imagined far from the standards and the superficial, a little worn, "French" clichés (...) the course of Kreisleiriana , alternately carried away without haste, or meditative without being sickly, rarely seemed so narrative, elliptical and precisely tortuous at the same time in its psychological and musical labyrinth: the interpreter seems, even more here, to take the listener by the hand and guide him step by step in an inner journey with multiple intertwining, for a meditative or painful journey from which no one will come out unscathed. For this disturbingly strange vision (to quote Freud about Hoffmann's Tales), this wonderful recital alone deserves to be acquired, and will enable many music lovers to discover an eminent and endearing pianist who, by her musical destiny and aesthetic bets succeeded - and how! - to give herself a name. »
