Greenwich Symphony Saves Best for Last

"The Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto is a staple of the piano repertory, and this reviewer has heard it played by Yevgeny Kissin, Marta Argerich, and the phenomenal Lang Lang. Mika Rännäli's performance was better, blending power, technique, artistic sensibility, and that sort of riveting presence that is simply a gift."

Greenwich Symphony closes its season

"Mika Rännäli was greeted with a lasting and noisy standing ovation...At the close of the encore, Rännäli sat still with his hands on the keyboard as the sound disappeared slowly and silence crept in. It was a magical way to close the season for the Greenwich Symphony."

"Mika Rannali has a well-earned reputation as one of Finland's finest pianists. This set is one of the 'sleepers' of the year."

American Record Guide

"Live performances these may be, but they are scrupulously clean in execution and engaging in temperament. Everything is flexible and nicely to scale."

Harris Goldsmith, New York Concert Review
