"Ian Hobson is not a pianist who does things by half-measures."

New York Times

"Breathtaking Pianism."


"The always remarkable Mr. Hobson supplied brilliance in full measure."

New York Times

"Awe-inspiring piano virtuosity.... A brilliant evening of piano fireworks."

The Post and Courier - Charleston, SC

"[Hobson] is an intelligent, cultivated pianist and a fine musician who doesn't rely on gimmickry to make his points. His technical resources are imposing and always at the service of the music.... Everything is beautifully played, and the sound is warm and resonant."

American Record Guide

"Hobson revealed the strength and architecture of every piece.... He didn’t treat the music like a museum piece; rather he plunged in with a headlong high energy."
New York Concert Review

"Ian Hobson's pianism is brilliant."

American Record Guide




"Never before have I listened to such a deep and artistically perfect performance."

Musical Moment - Poland

"Ian Hobson shows a finesse and virtuosity that rank him as one of the great pianists of our time.... He exhibits a clarity, naturalness, and nobility suggestive of Gieseking and Rubinstein and a controlled technique, temperament, and tone reminiscent of Lhévinne."

Clavier Magazine

"Hobson, accustomed to being a piano soloist with all the great orchestras, is as conductor a natural-born phenomenon."

Stuttgarter Zeitung
