HYPERION KNIGHT press reviews

"Not since Heifetz has anyone played Gershwin solos with this much panache. The songs glitter like jewels against black satin."
AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE

"Hyperion Knight plays with marvelous verve and spectacular confidence. Notes are never fumbled or blurred, yet the performance has swing and drive."
STEREOPHILE

"The biggest treat of the afternoon was the return of pianist Hyperion Knight playing Grieg’s Piano Concerto in A Minor. Knight has a caressing, liquid touch. His hands skim over the keys, creating a shimmering sound as if the keyboard were ice and the musician the skater. At the same time, each note was articulated, crystalline."
THE MAUI NEWS

"Breathtakingly textured, rich and wonderful, this recoding [Mussorgsky Pictures at an Exhibition] showcases Hyperion’s world-class style at the keyboard."
THE ABSOLUTE SOUND

"I defy you not to smile along with Hyperion as he romps through Irish jigs, Viennese waltzes and his own transcription of the Pachelbel Canon, which restores dignity and interest ti that overdone staple of Baroque bands."
THE AUDIO ADVENTURE

"Hyperion Knight played with intoxicating élan, brilliant dexterity and a shimmering nuance that made his account of the Saint-Saëns concerto worthy to stand alongside the masterful authority of Jeanne-Marie Darré’s classic EMI recording. This was most definitely the work of a Knight in high pianistic attitude."
