Reviwes

It is hard to write about the art of Milan Rericha. It is just excellent. He perfectly controls his breath, masterfully plays, his sound is round and warm and most of the time you get the impression he is not breathing. He does not miss a note, not even in the most exciting passages, nor in the technically demanding pianissimos...
