The Guardian: Beethoven: Sonatas Opp 53, 57 and 81a CD review – an athletic fortepiano performance ****.

Many fortepianists play meticulous modern copies of instruments from the 1820s and 30s, but Olga Pashchenko has the real thing.

How would Beethoven sound if you threw a molotov cocktail between the keys? The answers comes from Olga Pashchenko, a russian keyboard player who graduated ‘cum laude’ on harpsichord and fortepiano at the Amsterdam Conservatory. Pashchenko’s explosive Beethoven matches the observations of his contemporaries […] Especially when improvising, he knew no limits.

Volkskrant: WAT EEN PERSOONLIJKHEID, WAT EEN PIANISTISCH RASPAARDJE

Olga Pashchenko - Pasjtsjenko, zouden wij Nederlanders schrijven - is 26 jaar, zit in het tweede jaar van haar masteropleiding pianoforte en is eerstejaars klavecimbel aan het Amsterdams conservatorium. Wat doet de opname van zo'n studente in de schappen van een cd-winkel? Het antwoord geeft Pasj-tsjenko direct al bij de eerste tonen van haar debuut-cd Transitions. Met gloeiend charisma verdedigt ze, op een fortepiano van bouwer Donat Schöfftos, de Sonate op. 61 van Jan Ladislav Dussek, een componist die met één been in de klassieke periode staat en met het andere in de romantiek.
