4 Ballades, Op. 10
Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Handel, Op. 24
...de term meesterlijk dringt zich op. Akopian-Tamarina is zo'n pianiste die je met grote overtuiging wijst op de verborgen hoeken en gaten van een partituur. Onthouden die naam, inlijsten deze cd."

"This recording of her Brahms was made at Snape Maltings in 1995, but is only now released for the first time. And it’s a revelation: I’ve never heard Brahms Handel Variations played like this. The music seems to come from a distant place and time, but it draws us in with the most heart-warming immediacy…When the score calls for lyricism she finds a caressing tone, and when it demands assertiveness she’s absolutely there, but the drama is restrained until the towering fugue at the close."
