Notes & Reviews:

Franz Anton Hoffmeister (1754-1812) is associated with composers such as Haydn and Mozart through his involvement in Viennese music publishing. His Piano Sonatas are models of 18th century craftsmanship, combining the wit and display demanded of contemporary audiences with elements of operatic drama and poignancy. The Variations explore the dramatic possibilities of the keyboard, reflecting the Vienna of early Beethoven. Pianist Biliana Tzinlikova (b. 1974) is interested in the work of living composers and in piano rarities from the past and has taught at the Mozarteum since 2001.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
There is certainly a place for these pleasant, ingratiating pieces - especially as performed with zest and enthusiasm by this Bulgarian-born pianist. Indeed, her infectious smile is seen in two fetching photographs, and the curious can also find her playing and discussing this composer on You Tube. With around 20 solo keyboard sonatas we can look forward to many pleasant hours in his company. If Haydn comes to mind first while listening, the entertainment value is certainly high enough to warrant further exploration. The notes are acceptable, and the sound forward and well balanced.
