Notes & Reviews:

Steinway & Sons are honored to release the first comprehensive recording of Ullmann's piano works in nearly 20 years. Jeanne Golan, a Steinway artist, is bringing Viktor Ullmann's repertoire to concert and educational venues across the country for uniquely designed programs that balance performance and discussion - most recently at the Spertus Institute in Chicago, WFMT Radio, USC Los Angeles, and her debut at the Ravinia Festival in a program hosted by James Conlon.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
The recording here is smartly packaged, and the sound quality is good. Golan delivers the sonatas in a deadpan style that often leaves the listener wanting more. The scherzo movements in particular fall flat: by going too slow she forces us to take in all the bare scenery (the accompanimental pulsing chords), while the actual landmarks (the melodic motives) enter at wide-ranging intervals. The calmer moments are relentlessly even: all the tones emerge clearly and inoffensively.
