Heroic Incursions of David Kadouch

“The nine incursions place the pianist and virtuoso of David Kadouch at the helm, with abrupt changes of tones. And it concludes with a spirit of absolute communication.”

– Suzanne Lay-Canessa, BachtrackRelated Link

Franck, Poulenc, Strohl, Tombelle Cello Sonatas

“The partnership with Kadouch is also a fine thing, the two of them clearly singing from the same hymn sheet. The beginnings of a partnership akin to Erato’s longstanding cello-pianist team, Gautier Capuçon and Frank Braley, perhaps? Who knows. What I can say with confidence is that this is a standout album.”

– Charlotte Gardner, GramophoneRelated Link

Pianist David Kadouch delivers intelligent, imaginative recital

“Kadouch is an intellectual pianist, one who seems to favor head over heart. His sound at the instrument, in this case a Boesendorfer concert grand, can be aggressive and occasionally dry. But his musical instincts are sound, and it will be interesting to observe how his career, already taking hold in Europe, will develop as he plays more in the United States.”
