Artem Yasynskyy "can cares the most beatiful sound from the Keyboard. Indeed, he is a master" 

David Denton, David's Review Corner 

"Recital that (...) ranks ​from start to finish among the very best I've heard anywhere in the world" 

John W.Lamberti, CVNC North Calorina

"…[Mr. Yasynskyy] brings authority and panache to all the performances, and his considerable technique serves the music’s expression instead of calling attention to itself. The sound is excellent."
Rob Haskins, "American Record Guide"

"…pianists who play with a lean tone, light touch, narrow range of dynamics, sparing rubato, lively tempos, and very limited use of the pedal. Artem Yasynskyy pretty much follows this interpretive formula, but with the highest skill, the most sensitive artistry. In fact, after listening to his performances, I can say that if Naxos had wanted a single pianist for the project, he might well have been a top choice. He is that impressive"

Robert Cummings, ClassicNet

Artem plays "with the compelling advocacy needed to show these neglected works in the best possible light."

Jeremy Nicholas, Gramophone

"Eine herausragende Aufnahme auf dem hohen Niveau" 

José Luis Arévalo, Ritmo

"Yasynskyy produced a big sound (...) and showed an uncanny ability to match the colours of the orchestra" 

Cincinnati Enquirer 

"In this newest Naxos volume pianist Artem Yasynskyy pretty much follows this interpretive formula,but with the highest skill, the most sensitive artistry. (...) Listen to how the pianist seems to enact all sorts of laughter and fun in one of the most joyous Scarlattian romps you'll ever hear." 

Robert Cummings, Classical Net

Mozart Sonata D major for two pianos K 448   Allegro   Andante   Allegro molto   piano duo

Mozart Sonata D major for two pianos K 448 Allegro Andante Allegro molto piano duo

1st movement: Allegro con spirito (00:00) 2nd movement: Andante (7:58) 3rd movement: Molto Allegro (17:04) This Sonata is also well-known for the Mozart-effect.

Man sagt von der hoch begabten Pianistin, sie sei heftig in Mozart verliebt gewesen, der sie auch selbst unterrichtet hat. Bei ihm allerdings blieb die Beziehung rein musikalisch; er äußerte über die offenbar recht kräftig gebaute junge Frau: "Die freulle ist ein scheusal! – spielt aber zum entzücken." Die Sonate nähert sich zwar bereits dem Klavierkonzert an und besitzt durchaus sinfonische Elemente. Dennoch zeigt sie das Wesen einer reinen Klaviersonate, die Mozart genial mit den Prinzipien des Konzertanten verbindet. Das zweite Klavier hat also keinen "Orchesterpart" inne wie bei späteren Doppelsonaten anderer Meister, sondern besitzt ebenso wie die erste Stimme absolute Eigenständigkeit in einem opernhaft gesanglichen, spielerischen Dialog, der mit perfekter Ausgewogenheit auf die beiden Instrumente verteilt ist. 1.
