"Jan Bartoš is one of the best European pianists." 

Massimo Lo Iacono, Il Roma

"Jan Bartoš is one of my most impressive and interesting younger colleagues."

Alfred Brendel

"His approach to the keyboard is quintessentially refined. Everything in this recording is outstanding.

*****  Michael Church, BBC Music Magazine

"Bartoš's pianism spans the gamut from speaking eloquence to singing grace with the utmost naturalness".  

Bernard Jacobson, Seen and Heard International

"Opening gala concert of Smetana's Litomyšl with the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra led by Jiří Bělohlávek with pianist Jan Bartoš as a soloist should be considered a highlight of the season."

Lidové noviny

"In his physical expression, Jan Bartoš is modest and simultaneously immersed in his inner self, while stepping completely out of himself to let the music speak. He transitions naturally from a meditative mood to a raging storm, from gloominess to hope."
