Reviews

“Čechová gooses the variations on the Czech folksong, ‚Sowing the millet‘ with perky accents, highlighted inner voices and some truly explosive octaves…no quirky detail of the sprawling, early and ambitious 30-minute G minor Sonata goes unnoticed on [her] watch…a fascinating and excellently produced instalment of an important cycle.“
Gramophone, May 2015
