Notes & Reviews:

The "Wanderer Fantasy" (published in 1823) is one of Schubert's greatest masterpieces. It is also one of the most technically daunting of all his piano pieces. There have been many, otherwise very good performances that have fallen apart simply because the performer did not possess the technique to pull it off. I was in rapt attention from beginning to end of this performance, marvelling at the transcendent musicality of the performance. This is a perfect "Wanderer".
