Notes & Reviews:

Coming from a famous musical family (her father was the great Russian virtuoso Vladimir Sofronitzky), Viviana Sofronitsky presents Schubert's most important piano pieces played on a historical (contemporary) fortepiano (after Conrad Graf, 1819, by Paul McNulty).

Audiophile Audition
Extraordinarily fresh and alive, up on all the latest musicological evidence without ever making it sound affected or stylized (just stylish!), recorded in beautiful clear sound, and featuring an extraordinary pianist named Viviana Sofronitsky ... [who] plays the cadenzas as if they were absolutely spontaneous, and the ones she supplies where Mozart left none are illuminating miracles of charm and invention.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Tibor Varga Studio, Sion, Switzerland (07/2010).
