We will be lucky to hear Scriabin played anywhere near this powerfully any time soon" (Jack Walton, South Bend Tribune). "The piano of Edisher Savitski prays, laments and also makes joyful sounds; since Ivo Pogorelich, no one has played Schumann as he has. This amazing Georgian simply takes off to the sky!" (Hanuh Ron, Yediot Akhronot, Israel).
