Notes & Reviews:

A new signing for Naive, Greilsammer now presents a very personal recital: an original and highly convincing selection devoted to the fantasia genre. The symmetrical program begins with Bach's 'Fantasy' from 'Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue' and the progresses through Brahms, Schoenberg, Cage and more, eventually finding its way to Mozart's 'Fantasy in C minor, K. 475'. The second half of the program mirror images the composers from the first, eventually working its way back the 'Fugue' from Bach's 'Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue'.

Sunday Times
In this enjoyable piano montage, 16 items have been arranged symmetrically around Mozart's Fantasy in C minorààit's as though the alienation effect of piano "preparation" has been applied to a whole disc.

International Piano - Julian Haylock
However it may look on paper, in practice it works incredibly well, such is Greilsammer's magnetic ability to find mutual correspondences and attractions between opposite poles
