Indeed, lesser mortals may well weep with envy at such unfaltering authority. She has done her one time mentor, Arthur Rubinstein, proud.
Bryce Morrison, Gramophone August 2010

... her return to the concert platform is so gratifying as to make her seem like a brilliant newcomer.
David Patrick Stearns Philadelphia Inquirer, Oct 3, 2010

These recordings plain and without frills are a true sensation and should convince, if not overwhelm, the last skeptic of the human magic of her playing due to the outstanding musicality, the incredible pianistic profile and the unique charm of this exceptional pianist.
Attila Csampai (Steroplay, Germany, August 2010)

We have had many celebrated executants in London in this Chopin anniversary year -- Zimerman, Pollini and Yundi Li among them -- but none has taken my breath away quite like Fialkowska. If you have the chance to hear her, cancel all other appointments.
Barry Millington, The Evening Standard (London), May 28th, 2010

... Fialkowska was always one of those "best-kept secret" pianists, loved by connoisseurs for her tonal refinement and exquisite musical taste, but her ordeal seems to have released a new lease of life in her music-making... the playing is sheer bliss. If you buy one Chopin selection this year, make it Fialkowska's.
Hugh Canning, The Sunday Times (London) May 16th, 2010

It was not until I heard her play live, however, that I realised quite how extraordinary she is.
Guy Dammann, The Guardian (London), May 28th, 2010

...she's back now and more characterful than ever ... wrap your ears around the real thing ... this is high-class Chopin playing, deeply felt and demonstrably authentic ... her technique is fearless ... her warm and intimate tone, so unlike the bangers and crashers of the competition circuit
Norman Lebrecht, The Lebrecht Report, Dec. 16th, 2009

... an unusual testimony of the Art of perfect pianism.
Joachim Kaiser, Sueddeutsche Zeitung (Munich), January 14th, 2010

Fialkowska plays Chopin with a warmth, poetry, and detail of phrasing that is disappointingly rare today; she places her gifts at the composer's feet
Russell Platt, THE NEW YORKER online Dec 14, 2009

Fialkowska has become an artist of rare distinction as well as retaining all the virtuosity of her youth.
La Presse, Montreal, February 13, 2009
