    • “Et c’est sans doute le moment de dire à quel point son partenaire musical de longue date Michal Biel est un merveilleux pianiste. S’il fait ruisseler des arpèges virtuoses d’un bout à l’autre du clavier dans la deuxième mélodie, « Na wzgórzach Gruzji – Les collines de Georgie », ce sont surtout sa douceur de toucher, ses demi-teintes, les climats qu’il suggère, sa manière de suspendre le temps dans certains préludes ou postludes, qui sont remarquables.” “[Translated] …and this is probably the time to say how wonderful a pianist [Jakub’s] long-time musical partner Michal Biel is. He makes virtuoso arpeggios flow from one end of the keyboard to the other in the second melody, “Na wzgórzach Gruzji – The hills of Georgia”. Above all, it is his softness of touch, his half-tones, the climates he suggests, his way of suspending time in certain preludes or postludes, which are remarkable.”
