Fanfare Magazine, Review by Dave Saemann

Amir Katz is an interesting Chopin player. He is a sensitive and mature artist. His reflections on each of the nocturnes always are thoughtful. He has an elegant sense of touch and voices his chords warmly.

Westfälischen Rundschau, Review by Ursula Oelgemöller

Märkische Allgemeine, Review by Ann Brünink

“[…] the absolute highpoint of this season’s 7th symphony concert.”

[…] And so the Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No. 2 in B-flat major, Op. 19, was the absolute highpoint of this season’s 7th symphony concert. Responsible for a significant portion of this was the Israeli pianist Amir Katz (b. 1973).

Piano News, Review by Marco Frei

[…] one can well attest of Katz that he has helped give tonally sumptuous, nuanced expression to the “potential of the cantabile” in Mendelssohn’s Songs without Words Op. 19, 30, 38, 53, 62, 67, 85, and 102 on this double CD.
