Notes & Reviews:

Mihaela Ursuleasa received the ECHO Klassik prize for her debut album Piano & Forte last October, and now follows that masterpiece with a brand-new recording. While the first disc took us on a musical journey around the world, Romanian Rhapsody takes us to the pianist’s home(s): the title piece by George Enescu is a veritable hymn to Romania, where she began her career. A happy encounter with Claudio Abbado then led her to Vienna, where a scholarship made it possible for her to study seriously. The music on her new CD thus follows the course of the Danube, as it were, extending to Schubert.

"Recalls the vivacity and attack of the young Martha Argerich coupled with the sensitivity of Clara Haskil." - Spiegel.de
