Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
By alternating Felix and Fanny Mendelssohn pieces, Deferne allows us to compare and contrast music by brother and sister. The elder sibling (Fanny) gives us the better melodies, and Felix gives us more dramatic music. Both had excellent piano technique, and a lot of this music is brimming with brilliant passage-work. Deferne seems to toss this off effortlessly.
