Notes & Reviews:

Time and again, Schubert appears to tear holes in the space-time continuum. A single Moment Musical a few minutes long can seem like an eternity full of pain or joy; a sonata movement of "heavenly lengths" can seem to be over very quickly. We experience both of these on the new GENUIN CD with the Lübeck pianist, Konstanze Eickhorst.

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
This Bremen-born musician was a student of Karl-Heinz Kammerling at the Hochschule fur Musik in Hanover, and she also worked with Vlado Perlemutter in Paris. Her program opens with the well known Wanderer Fantasy. She is a pianist that lets the music speak naturally for itself. Given a flawless technique, intensely lyrical approach, and comfortably even, free-flowing playing, I am prepared to say that these are among the most satisfying interpretations to be found. The opening Allegro is played with a meaningful sense of dynamic contrast. The last two movements, boldly characterized, hold the listener's attention all the time. The Moments Musicaux are performed with grace and charm. Good notes, excellent sound, and, once again, a really fine sounding Steinway D. We even get a relevant facsimile of a page from the sonata.
