"Berlinskaya is at her best, with vibrant, spontaneous, and enchanting playing."

Fanfare (USA) - July 2018

Myron Silberstein

"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."

RESMUSICA (FRANCE) - JUNE 2018

Benedict Hevry

« 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. »

FONOFORUM (GERMANY) - MAY 2018

Ingo Harden

« There is mature audacity, in which factual fantasy and accuracy, emphasis and simplicity are impressively combined. Berlinskaya's play convinces from the first Beethoven bars on with a fine modeling of the musical event, which gives their play an unmistakable character: serious, clear without any pedal fog, strictly on the text and yet interpreting it delicately with a lot of imagination. (...) She also managed to play without the slightest artistic weakness the sonata of Medtner, title of the album, and Opus 16 of Schumann; (...) Ravel's "noble and sentimental Waltzes" are particularly striking for me personally: Berlinskaya performs it without the usual mixture of demonstrative tidiness and sentiment thus she manages to bring out all the more clearly their harmonious and artistic perfection. Great, sustainably impressive interpretive art. »

MAGAZIN KLASSIK (GERMANY) - APRIL 2018

Manuel Stangorra

"Bewitching", "Enchantment", "Exhilarating", "Ludmila Berlinskaya triumphs at technical level, her delicate dynamic touches also inspire enthusiasm" "The grandiose interpretation is obviously the result of an in-depth study of the devilish work"

CONCERTONET.COM - MARCH 2018

Christian Lorandin

« Ludmila Berlinskaya’s sound palette and touch, able to go from the classical precision of Beethoven to the heady sounds of Medtner or Schumann, enlightening us, finally, with the crystalline wealth of Ravel, are a real stylistic exercise. »

MUSIKZEN - MARCH 2018

François Lafon

« Her playing is likewise : contrasted, nostalgic, engaged up until hallucination. (...) In these times of good-thinking (including musical), a more than welcome reminiscence of the great visionary interpreters. »

Pierre Gervasoni

« Ludmila Berlinskaya has an exceptional view in this large-scale program, which broadens the perception of the works while respecting the style of each composer The Russian pianist begins her recital with the authority needed to impose the Beethovenian singularity without altering its mystery and fantasy. With Nikolai Medtner (1879-1951), sprawling exploration is still in order ; this time, in the domain of remembrance, burning and caressing like the schumannian flow that follows. After three thundershowers (of notes), a no less spectacular (those fingers!) rainbow (of tones) by Ravel to conclude this disc entirely bright and luminous. »
