  • "The British pianist overcame the technical hurdles with casual eligance"
  • "The Englishman, almost too controlled and reserved, painted vivid soul paintings in muted colours between the two poles of heartbreaking tragedy and courtly aplomb."
  • "In the twelve Etudes Opus 25 Cuthbertson works with sharp contrasts and achieves a dramatic concentration which is second to none."

  • Cuthbertsons playing attests to the highest technical skill and virtuosic brilliance and his interpretation is thereby absolutely free and rich in nuances. A mastery of musical expression, which is probably only possible through a lifelong preoccupation with Chopin

  • (Op.10 No.3) Cuthbertson played with a wonderfully warm-blooded (sic), but also clear, pure sound

  • (Op.25 No.12) stormy and driven as if by the brute force of nature
