Reviews:

"In a lifetime of listening, this is, hands down, the finest recording of Mozart piano concertos I’ve ever heard." - Fanfare

"McDermott's playing is better than anyone else that I’ve heard...It’s so alive! It’s as if I never heard this concerto (K. 238) before." - American Record Guide

We have waited a long time for an American pianist of this stature.” - Gramophone

With the excellent rapport she enjoys with conductor Scott Yoo and the Odense Symphony Orchestra of Denmark, she plunges confidently into two fascinating piano concertos that tell us a lot about Mozart’s artistic aims and the course of his further developments in this genre.” - Atlanta Audio Club

McDermott’s exceedingly good taste and technical prowess make for an ideal blend of musical pleasantries, delighting the listener with her innate ability to shape Mozartian lines, equal in parts lyrical, harmonic and rhythmic. This is an 18th-century pianism of poise and courtliness, neoclassical elegance and Viennese affability.” - theWholeNote
