Notes & Reviews:

Songs without words - Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy is regarded as the inventor of this genre representing a fascinating region within the piano literature. It has not been explained how Mendelssohn came up with this poetic term. In any case, these genial atmospheric pictures show us the composer at the height of his mastery and details of his individual style attest to his great gift in the field of melodic invention, part writing, technique and harmony.

MusicWeb International, November 2012
Korstick - who has recorded extensively for CPO - specialises in romantic music, and is clearly completely at home in this repertoire...This is a disc that I cannot fault at all - highly desirable.
