Notes and Editorial Reviews

While it would be impossible to hide the massive pianistic technique in her possession, Ms. Zayas chooses not to display it for its own sake. A true musician-pianist, she has always subordinated technical accomplishment to the music itself, revealing its beauty and structure with a warm, rich tone and a superb understanding of its style and architecture. In his 'American Record Guide' review of her 1996 recording of the Chopin Preludes, Schonberg likewise noted this proper balance and order: 'She filters Chopin's notes through a fertile mind, with a very personal but never overdone kind of romanticism that looks back to the great pianists of a previouis age'. This new album contains magisterial interpretations of some of Schubert's best Read more keyboard works and is an important addition to the Zayas discography. Read less
