"I can hear in the music of both composers a similarity in their processes of giving physical form to their inspirations.

The cruel resistance of the blank page feels, in both cases, inexistent, ignored. And therein lies an important, precious connection between Mozart and Schumann: an unobstructed directness to their music, in which the purity of intention remains intact." Piotr Anderszewski

"With this new Warner Classics release, Polish pianist Piotr Anderszewski finds inspiration with Fantasias from Mozart and Schumann. It's a commanding album with Anderszewski demonstrating quite remarkable pianism in four of the finest works written for the instrument. With playing of such elevated musicianship Anderszewski is in remarkable form providing a recital of a very special quality for Warner." Recording of the Month MusicWeb Feb 2017

"All the performances, though, show the lucidity and objectivity that have always been such outstanding qualities of Anderszewski's playing...a touching performance of Schumann's last piano work, the so-called Ghost Variations" The Guardian

"Convincing, companionable, persuasive, hugely intelligent, unpredictable, totally without cliché. I know I shall always want to listen to Anderszewski" Gramophone Award Nomination 2017 - Instrumental
