'The violent conclusion was truly frightening, with Salonen delivering maximum venom'.
'More than a curtain-raiser, this was a powerful performance, whetting the appetite for more Prokofiev to come'.
'A performance with moments of excitement marred by a lack of focus or a sense of partnership between pianist and orchestra'.
'Salonen and the Philharmonia players maintained a wonderful level of delicacy'.
