Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine
The book teems with subtle cross-references, like the sudden reappearance in the last volume of the amamzingly Debussian gesture that launched the whole cycle. There are other echoes, too, from Schumann, Bart=k, even folk music and rock. It adds up to something rich, strange and utterly riveting. The recording is beautifully fine-grained and warm, and the performances from Noriko Kawai have just the right combination of cat-like energy and delicate inwardness.
