Notes & Reviews:

Following Yojo's first CD release for TYXart (TXA12001), at the age of 15, for which he received enthusiastic reviews, this CD now presents the 17-year-old with Liszt's monumental B Minor Sonata as the main work.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
German pianist Yojo Christen came first to our attention with his debut recording at age 15. Now at the ripe old age of 17 he continues to take on some of the most difficult works in the repertoire. The Liszt Sonata seems to be on every pianist's agenda these days. It's challenging and showy. The performance flows naturally and has the vigor and impetuosity of youth to recommend it.
