… the rarely-performed Fifth Piano Concerto, called ‘Egyptian', by Camille Saint-Saëns. Its main protagonist Pascal Rogé met his task with absolute surety and striking personal input. He engaged the audience mainly with his colourful range of attacks and the detailed elaboration of his overall conception, but the acoustical balance and precision in ensemble playing between the piano and the orchestra also deserve recognition. — Deniky Bohemia
