Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine, May 2014
[He] treats everything with equal respect and palpable affection. The Wanderer is a real test of any musician but Chamayou surmounts the work's sometimes unpianistic demands without ever leaving you, as some do, feeling as if you've been punched in the face. Instead he revels in its virtuosity and in the sheer variety of texture.

BBC Music Magazine, June 2014
Chamayou's impressive reserves of articulation and firepower seem a touch stretched by the finale of the Wanderer Fantasy (compared, say, with Murray Perahia's recording), but elsewhere his tight-reined, skilfully paced virtuosity and musicianship excel, while his expressive touch in Liszt's Schubert song-transcriptions is state-of-the-art.

The Guardian, 14th March 2014
Chamayou's playing is consistently persuasive. The Wanderer-Fantasie is a bit heavyweight for my taste, although the Klavierstncke are superbly done, and there's also a wonderfully graceful performance of the D790 Deutsche TSnze.

Sunday Times, 2nd March 2014
Conceived by the pianist as a kind of "Schubertiade", this affecting, beautifully performed disc conjures up those great occasions of convivial music-making, but on the assumption they could embrace the serious statement, too.

International Record Review, May 2014
His musically insightful, technically flawless playing can be confused with no-one else's. He exudes confidence without the slightest hint of egotism or ostentation...Ultimately the key characteristic of this recording is that indispensable element of great Schubert playing: a singing line capable of piercing the very depths of the heart.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
Chamayou offers an exceptional Schubert album, packed with both grandeur and control. Attention to detail is clear in the formidable Wanderer Fantasy, the pinnacle of this program. His warm sound and sensitivity makes the Klavierstucke especially eloquent: beautiful voicing in 2 and 3 and a firm handle on rubato convey tenderness. The inclusion of arrangements by Liszt and Strauss presents compelling perspectives on Schubert. He plays the opening 'Auf dem Wasser zu Singen' with great freedom and flair without sacrificing Schubert's melodic lines. This release is a contender for Best of Year.
