‘Don’t waste your time reading this review: beg, borrow or buy a copy of this life-enhancing disc as soon as possible … If you don’t come
away from the whole experience, with a grin a mile wide … then there’s probably no hope for you.’ — BBC Music magazine [on Uri Caine’s Diabelli Variations]

‘Not for purists. No, wait: it should be mandatory for purists’ – Jazzloft 

…Caine ranges freely over the music, with infectious brio, helped by the sparkling support of his backup band….His cadenza comes with the penultimate figure, and it is truly an amazing cascade of notes and ideas…
