"Stunning … intoxicating … revelatory … a treasure." These are some of the adjectives that critics bestowed on this program by a pianist who celebrated her 75th birthday with this release, her first studio recording in 20 years. "She knows what she is doing every minute of the time. It is amazing!" exclaimed Josef Hofmann after hearing Slenczynska in her 1933 debut at New York's Town Hall, and the same was true in 1999.

"A true child of the Romantic tradition in her repertory and in her manner of expression, she plays Schumann with the same authority and thoughtful conviction as Moiseiwitsch and Horowitz did a generation ago, each section of a suite, like Carnaval, emerging as a real character piece, a fully-formed personality…. The octaves in the March Against the Philistines, the Paganini section, the accumulated velocity of the whirlwind waltzes, make a sensational impact. But the softer, Eusebius, sections of the suite are even more compelling: her extra repeat of the refrain in Valse noble, her wistfulness in the Aveu, her long, silken line in the evocation of Chopin, all make for a colossal standard of comparison for the new millennium. No less a service is rendered by Ed Thompson's audio engineering, making this one of the most coveted albums for the new year, a credit to any pianophile's basic collection."—Audiophile Audition
