“Rhythmic precision and powerful vitality... an inspiring interpretation.”
- Sulzbach-Rosenberg Zeitung, August 2013

“The masterpiece here is the Berg, which sounds as impassioned, conflicted and intricately layered as ever. Nothing appears to cause anxiety for the Baton Rouge musicians, who dispatch the score's rhythmic and expressive challenges with handsome aplomb. Violinist John Gilbert and pianist Dmitri Shteinberg are vibrant soloists and the winds perform with cohesive and precise assurance under conductor Timothy Muffitt.”
- The Gramophone, January 1, 2013

“Solid virtuoso with evident interpretive imagination.”
- Fanfare Magazine CD review, 2013

“Shteinberg played the difficult piano passages with an enviable cleanliness of articulation.”
- Palate in Harmony, Burlington VT, December 1, 2012

“There seemed to be no limit to the magic Shteinberg could conjure from the stunning Bosendorfer piano, inlaid with Kuhn sculptures. The clarity of his articulation in the fastest passages was amazing as his dynamic range. His palette of tonal color was extensive. His way of dealing with transitions was delightful while passages with rapid crossed hands or with elaborate, rapid fingerings were spell-binding.”
