Min’s superbly controlled technique and formidable coloristic resources. Her liberties command interest in how they point up Chopin’s amazing harmonic ideas and increasingly involved contrapuntal textures

Min plays with the most ravishing piano tone I’ve heard in the last 50 discs I’ve listened to, at least! Her dynamic control is out of this world—anyone who can make silk out of dissonance this strong is a top-notch artist in my book. She has a patience that most of these pieces require, and a love for intentional silences…. Anybody’s music would be served well by Min’s touch.

Klara Min conveys that sense with beautiful phrasing, a deceptively facile way of handling the difficult pages and a dynamic sense so important to the successful performance of this music.
— Grego Applegate Edwards, Classical-Modern Music Review
Klara Min has done a worthy job of tackling challenging music by the leading composers of her homeland.
