Notes & Reviews:

"No matter what he plays, Schiff is a stranger to exaggeration, but not to the expression of intense emotion. And he combines extreme sophistication with a diretness of utterance which is very close to the folk tradition, though this is sometimes belied by his innate and possibly incurable elegance... The combined beauty of the piano playing and the recorded sound, added to the virtues noted above, surely establish a new benchmark for this repertoire." ***** -BBC Music
