Notes & Reviews:

Benjamin Moser, a rising star of the German scene, presents an unusual coupling of the last Sonatas of Beethoven and Schubert, both composed at a similar time, between 1822 and 1826.

New York Times
Commanding solos in an evening of concertos. This year the chosen soloists were particularly excellent ... Mr. Moser (who at 6' 6" may be the tallest pianist since Van Cliburn) tore into Liszt's Piano Concerto No. 1 in E-flat, giving an impetuous and powerful performance. His playing was impressive for its organic sweep and full-bodied character ... an urgent and feisty performance.
