Notes & Reviews:

Although Raff is remembered primarily as one of the foremost symphonists of his day, by far his largest output was for the piano. The three works recorded here date from his early years in Weimar, and include the newly-discovered Fantaisie. British-Vietnamese pianist Tra Nguyen gave her first performance at the Hanoi Opera House when she was ten and has continued to engage audiences worldwide. She studied with Lev Naumov at the Moscow Conservatory and with Christopher Elton at the Royal academy of Music, London. "A performance of surpassing keyboard artistry and passion" - Steven Haller, American Record Guide

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
The playing is of a beguiling loveliness, the recording has richness and depth, and the music, a revelation, makes one eager for the next volume.
