Notes & Reviews:

The Guardian, 23rd May 2013
In the +tudes and the Fantasiestncke his playing veers between ravishing, delicately coloured poetry and an almost dismissive fierceness, so that the promise of what could be a very fine Schumann set is repeatedly snatched away. It's an exasperating, rather perplexing disc.

BBC Music Magazine, August 2013
There is real beauty to Kempf's sound, especially in the lyrical moments of the Fantasiestucke, and careful, intelligent voicing of the very contrapuntal Etudes Symphoniques...there's also rewarding flair which never seems to exist for its own sake, but pursues a larger total impression.

Gramophone Magazine, August 2013
Right from the opening notes of Freddy Kempf's new Schumann disc, you grasp what his approach will be, for his 'Des Abends' that launches Op. 12 is striking in its dreaminess...The most successful thing here is the Blumenstuck, which is charmingly played, though not a match for Horowitz.
