Here's a link to the review from Bachtrack by Mark Pulliner:
"Our day was structured into four concerts, a brief interval inserted into each, with a break of an hour in between. Close on seven hours of concentrated listening on the cramped, hard bench seating of the theatre added an element of endurance test not entirely out of keeping with the gritty, austere character of the music. Illuminated by six candelabra, the Carduccis kept us enthralled, making light of the physical demands placed on both performers and audience."
Igor Levit's performance of Frederick Rzewski's seminal - and virtuosic - solo piano work at the Wigmore Hall was reviewed by The Guardian: "Rzewski puts everything from the baroque to Stockhausen and beyond into the stylistic blender, throwing in references to a couple more revolutionary anthems (the Italian Bandiera Rossa and Eisler’s Solidaritätslied) along the way, to create a work that demands transcendental Lisztian bravura. Levit took it all on with astonishing aplomb and sometimes scarcely believable accuracy."
