Notes and Editorial Reviews

The second CD of this set is Mitsuko Uchida talking to James Jolly about Robert Schumann.

Uchida is, simply, Uchida – an elegant, deeply musical interpreter who strikes an inspired balance of head and heart in everything she plays.
-- Chicago Tribune

This seizes you by the scruff of the neck within seconds... [Uchida finds] a different colour for every one of the 18 pieces. The coda to No13 is the most astonishing example of pianistic virtuosity I've heard in years...overall the CD is a marvel.
