Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Schiff, without exceeding the essential Mozartian sensibility, takes a somewhat more romantic and forward-looking view... His fingerwork is precise yet mellow, and his sense of color consistently excites admiration... [S]uch is the inherent freshness...of his playing that one accepts [his] idiosyncrasies as a natural product of live performance." -- The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs & DVDs [2003/4 edition] "Schiff, without exceeding the essential Mozartian sensibility, takes a somewhat more romantic and forward-looking view...
