cutting through the torrents of notes to find the structural core...
the sovereign command of the playing is never in doubt.
GEOFFREY NORRIS, THE DAILY TELEGRAPH, 31/08/2002
... a three-disc set that testifies to Ogdon's remarkable affinity
with Rachmaninov's musical idiom... He is in commanding form.

MICHALE KENNEDY, THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH, 15/09/2002
... these are deeply satisfying performances, poetic as well as
virtuosic, especially in the Preludes where the changes of mood are
superbly captured and manipulated.... he is in dazzling form... Both
the sonatas are grandly performed .... No student of pianism
