Diabelli Variations CD - Daily Telegraph
Saturday 5 May 2001

The mastery of technique can be taken for granted in Anderszewski's playing, but you have only to listen to this disc to appreciate the extraordinary level of intensity with which he is able to convey his own fascination for the music's inventiveness. Intellectual concentration is blended with freedom and fantasy in encapsulating the contrasted temperaments of the 33 variations...

This playing draws you right inside the fertile mind of a composer who could find so much to divert him in Diabelli's innocent little waltz. With such a command of keyboard colouring and vital, searching interpretative spirit, Anderszewski gives a performance that is as original as it is riveting.
