Notes & Reviews:

With the talent of young pianist Cassandra Wyss, this Wilhelm Stenhammar and Jean Sibelius compilation emerges as a gateway into the world of Nordic musical gems. With her artistic courage to be stubborn - to be understood in the spirit of Hermann Hesse - namely to select precisely those works that suit her as a pianist, Ms. Wyss enables the careful listener to take a new and very personal view of the rich repertoire of Scandinavian music. "... she plays with a smile. Charm is a critical element of this music, and Wyss conveys that winningly" - Fanfare on Stenhammar CD (C5117)

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
Wyss credits her training as a singer for her ability to let the melodies in these works unfold more organically. Her phrases are always finely shaped. Her affinity for rich lyricism makes her an excellent advocate for these works.
