Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
Saving the music of Robert for last, Deferne plays the well-known Toccata and the seldom performed Gesang der Fruhe with brilliance and flair. The latter, a work of subtlety and understatement, is well worth having, though less immediately appealing than many of Schumann's other solo piano music. While the engineering is first rate, the pianist's notes are peculiar, to say the least. Conceived most poetically, they are not so easily pieced together and require some effort to extract all the necessary information.
