Notes and Editorial Reviews

Matthias Kirschnereit sees a theme running like a thread throughout his new Schubert CD: “It comprises for the most part works from his early and middle periods, in which the dark, despairing, and brusque side of the composer is revealed as well as a Schubert who squarely faces life, and who is exuberant and even boldly daredevil.” Matthias Kirschnereit displays a highly developed sense of the nuances, as well as the rough contrasts, required to follow in Schubert’s footsteps.

“This is a recital so extraordinarily played that comparisons become superfluous—no matter how many other good versions you might own, you simply have to sample artistry as exalted as this.” — Fanfare
