CD reviews (Japan)

Three Japanese magazines published on March 18 have reviews of CD Debussy Szymanowski by Rafał Blechacz.

Record Geijutsu (=music, art), April 2012 gives Blechacz's CD Debussy Szymanowski the status of "specially selected disc" and has two reviews written by Jiro Hamada and Tsutomu Nasuda.

Also in this April issue, Hidekazu Yoshida, a leading critic of music, literature and arts, picks up this Blechacz's CD in his essay titled, "What is French Music -my thoughts after listening to Blechacz". Yoshida is 99 years old and his serialized essay is quite popular among readers.

In Ongaku-no-tomo (=music friend), Yoshiko Ikuma gives her thoughts on the new album;
".....Blechacz's tranquil, serene and introverted expression is effective in encompassing the whole title with noble flavor...."

Monthly Chopin also has picked up Blechacz's CD with a review by Kyoko Michishita.

I would like to post these reviews sometime soon.
