Notes & Reviews:

Odradek Records takes Schoenberg's use of traditional classical idioms was the starting point for his innovations in new music. Its first release features Italian pianist Pina Napolitano performing Schoenberg's complete piano works, in a rendition that, fully realizing the scores in all their complexity, animates the music and makes it dance.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
This seems to be a very nice recording of Schoenberg's complete piano works. Op. 11 has an appealing mysteriousness, and it tickles me pink that the Langsam from Op. 19 sounds like 'Jingle Bells' at the beginning. Napolitano is an excellent musician with a love for these works that shows itself in the warmth of her tone and the intelligent care in her phrasing. The sound is fine.
