Notes & Reviews:

Celebrated for her interpretations of the classical and romantic repertoire, Janina Fialkowska is particularly distinguished as one of the great interpreters of the piano works of Chopin and Mozart. With this new ATMA recording, she immerses into Schubert's music with two of his great piano sonatas.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
This very fine recording of two important Schubert sonatas is worth hearing. Fialkowska's understanding of this music is clear. Fialkowka's playing is sure, broad, and varied. She brings to this repertoire a lovely gentle quality that is highly appropriate. Changes of character are clear. The slow movements are flexible. A good example of what she brings to the table can be seen in her handling of the finale of the A-major Sonata: jocular and charming, with a nice understanding of the humorous aspects of the movement (especially of a harmonic and rhythmic nature) - this is a penetrating and rewarding performance. A simple but elegant program.
