The American Record Guide (July/August 2006) did not like Estrin's performance of Chopin's music very much. The reviewer has some very critical comments: Estrin's sound has a strident edge to it and a lack of tonal control, despite careful tempos and simply goes on to say, I would avoid this recording.

Our most important event this Fall will be the annual Paderewski Lecture-Recital. The Polish Music Center 's tradition of presenting outstanding Polish musicians to California audiences at this event goes back to 2002, when we invited Zygmunt Krauze to perform for us. Since then we have hosted Joanna Bruzdowicz in 2003, Stanisław Skrowaczewski in 2004, and Marta Ptaszyńska in 2005. On Thursday, October 12 th at 7:30 PM , English pianist Jonathan Plowright will perform an exquisite program of works by Ignacy Jan Paderewski and Zygmunt Stojowski, and U.S.-born scholar now living in Warsaw, Joseph A. Herter, will deliver a fascinating retrospective lecture. Our program this year honors Zygmunt Stojowski on the 60 th anniversary of his death. Although not well-known today, Zygmunt Stojowski was an internationally acclaimed virtuoso pianist and pedagogue, a fascinating composer, and a close friend of Paderewski. The Polish Music Center received a substantial donation of manuscripts and personal papers from the composer's sonsHenry and Alfredwho, together with their families, are expected at the event. The Polish Music Center is also planning to publish a book on Stojowski by Mr. Herter, which will be available that evening.
