“In the three Schubert lieders transcribed by Liszt, Yerokhin managed to recreate the dark and broken spirit of Schubert’s songs so that we don’t miss the voice …
And in the second part it was the turn for the famous “Pictures at an Exhibition” … a very personal and interesting version of a work that, yet heard a hundred times, kept the interest when it was performed by the Russian pianist”
Juan Carlos Galtier “Heraldo de Aragón” / Zaragoza 2020
“Sergei Yerokhin has shown himself to be a master of great height with a demanding program and an absence of dramatic bargains … bringing creativity as a predominant note..”
