"This, the 11th volume in the series devoted to the complete piano works of Leopold Godowsky performed by Konstantin Scherbakov, features some of the composer’s less well-known repertoire. Throughout Scherbakov proves to be the perfect advocate of this much-too-little-performed music. His technical abilities are never less than extraordinary, and his musical message is always at the forefront of his interpretations. This is gold-standard piano playing which should not be missed."  Adrian Corleonis, Fanfare 


This album is a flawless, elegant showcase for Scherbakov’s many talents as well as Godowski’s virtuosic demands and sweet, rich, late-romanticism...My favourite work from this album is a Suite for left hand… Also very satisfying are a Prelude and Fugue (with a jaunty subject built on a B-A-C-H theme), also for left hand. Musical Toronto


Scherbakov makes one marvel anew at what just five fingers and two feet can achieve. Jeremy Nicholas, Gramophone


Scherbakov is a good advocate for these technically challenging works…[his] devotion to this overlooked composer is admirable. People following this series will enjoy this recording. Sang Woo Kang © 2015 American Record Guide
