“Acclaimed by Busoni, Anton Rubinstein and Paderewski, Mark Hambourg was a pianist with a force of character as large as his fortissimos, and there is no better evidence for this than in these ferociously brave Hungarian Rhapsody interpretations….His first concern was with the music behind the notes of the score and it is telling that, for all the jaw-dropping virtuosity, it is the dolcissimi and leggierissimi that perhaps remain most indelibly etched on the memory….The sound is huge; the nocturnal sections are absolutely beautiful.”

- Colin Clarke, CLASSIC RECORD COLLECTOR, Spring, 2006
