Gourari is at her best in the four Scherzos. In the first Scherzo, one is immediately impressed by the strength of her technique. Next, one notes the range of her dynamics and her liking for dramatic pauses and alterations of tempo. (…) Gourari is a first-class musician, however, the architecture of the music takes precedence, and it is a rare pianist who can shape this music as well as she does.
