Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, February 2015
Korstick's account of the final sonata, in B flat D960, is as moving as any I have heard. It ranks with Sviatoslav Richter's various performances...This is as near perfection as you will get...These discs should surely find a wide audience.

"When it comes to serving music through pianistic brilliance... tone and interpretive intelligence, then Michael Korstick is in his element." (FonoForum) Among critics and informed citizens of the piano world, this Köln native enjoys considerable renown as one of Germany's leading pianists. Mr. Korstick has proven to be an individual interpreter, creating new benchmark recordings, whether in works of unknown composers or the standard literature, He won the 2005 Echo-Klassik prize in the category Solo Recording of the Year for this rerelease of Schubert's B flat major Sonata, D960.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
Michael Korstick's double album presents three sonatas plus the works noted. The Sonata in A runs to almost 42 minutes and includes that long first movement repeat. Korstick keeps the music moving forward, and many might prefer that.
