"...the Paganini Variations have the same sort of pyrotechnic feeling as the mono recording that bought Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli to everyone's attention ca. 1950. Tension there is plenty in this account, but it is sharply romanticized, full-toned and wholly successful in terms that are not likely to come back into fashion soon."

"…Ginastera's brilliantly incisive music might have been written for the special talents of this pianist. The lyrical and percussive extremes of the composer's distinctive style fully exploit Rodriguez' remarkable combination of introspective, poetic delicacy and explosive virtuosity."

"…This brilliant American virtuoso takes charge immediately and steers his way through the entire concerto with blazing conviction, tremendous technical strength, unswerving concentration and galvanic excitement – but always under absolute control. Among current CDs of the Rachmaninov Third, this goes immediately to the top of the list. I'm familiar with over 60 commercially-issued recordings of the work, and I have no hesitation in placing Rodriguez/Tabakov in the top five."

---American Record Guide

"…The most positively macho, dramatic, and emotionally riveting performance within long memory. At last, we have among us a true artist quite unafraid of being a dramatic virtuoso, the greatest since Kapell."

"...Rodriguez' nimble sprint through these overly familiar concertos rejuvenate both music and listener...tenderness without schmaltz...velocity without violence...sensitivity of voicing...playing with such a strong point of view...Even if you think you know this music too well-or perhaps especially if you do-you should give this disc a try..."

"…these pieces (Reger's Variations and Fugue on a Theme of Mozart) have been recorded fairly often though never in better performances than this...the real surprise comes from Reger's transcriptions of Bach's Brandenburg Concertos No. 3 and 5. This performance establishes the value of these transcriptions as substantial art in their own right. It has the special fascination of familiar music heard in an unfamiliar form, and it almost convinces one that Bach might have first imagined this music played on two keyboards…"

"…This is some Rachmaninov playing! Santiago Rodriguez is the real thing. For a moment, one imagines that Rachmaninov himself is at the keyboard. Rodriguez has something of Pletnev about him: wonderful authority and immaculate technical control, tremendous electricity as well as great poetic feeling. Outstanding in every way."

"..Rodriguez offers some of the most commanding strongly-etched, and thoroughly convincing interpretations this music has ever been given. If you missed the first volume (ELAN-82244) containing the Preludes Op. 32 and Sonata No. 1, pick it up together with the latest installment. Both offer Rachmaninov playing on the very highest level."

"There is no doubt from the opening bars of the Third Concerto that he is a Rachmaninov interpreter of outstanding caliber, whose playing withstands the most exalted comparisons. Indeed as one plays this disc, one's thoughts turn only to the greatest exponents of this repertoire-Horowitz, Rachmaninov himself and William Kappel. Rodriguez, too, has dazzling virtuosity at his command and also fine musicianship and a rare keyboard authority."
