Notes & Reviews:

"Schmitt-Leonardy is perfectly suited to this music. He has seemingly limitless technique, precise and clear, with a wide range of color in his sound. He makes effective use of rubato and delivers the material with just the right amount of panache. In the large set of variations, the pianist has an overall conception that effectively builds in a classical framework to a virtuosic conclusion that ends quietly. Recorded sound is quite good, as is the booklet."-American Record Guide
