What people are saying

“Udagawa has a real feel for Rachmaninoff’s delicate expressive nuances … The recording balance is perfect, the violin never clouded by the density of the piano part, and the sound is brilliant and true.” The Strad

 "A pupil of Nathan Milstein, Hideko Udagawa retains the Master’s nobility throughout a programme of Rachmaninov transcriptions centered on Mikhailovsky’s skilful adaptation of the Cello Sonata."  Recording   Performance
