“With her warm, flexible tone, Lise Berthaud gives a performance of enormous expressive range and tosses off the more showy passages with virtuoso panache...All in all, it's a wonderfully played recital, drawing the listener into the world of each composer.” --Gramophone Magazine, February 2014

“The voice of the ‘middle finger’ (according to Percy Grainger) has rarely been heard to better advantage than on Lise Berthaud and Adam Laloum’s programme of Brahms, Schubert and Schumann. Berthaud’s warm, flexible tone is a joy to hear, and she and Laloum pass on a strong involvement with the emotions of all three works.”  --Gramophone December 2014
