Description
If one were to list the supreme masterpieces of piano literature, Schumann's Fantasie in C Major, Opus 17, would be in that pantheon. His Études Symphoniques, Opus 13, (complete with five posthumous variations) is also a rich, glowing, intensely personal musical work. Here too is his highly virtuosic and devilishly difficult Toccata, Opus 7, heard in a live performance.

"A supreme example of an almost extinct brand of golden age piano playing. A contemporary of the late Shura Cherkassky and Jorge Bolet, the 84-year-old Wild offers pianism that excels in the interpretive succinctness, personal tone-painting and technical wizardry of both of them. His Études are characterized by compelling musicality, poetic astuteness and breathtaking virtuosity. More important, a sense of continuity, of narrative, ties these disparate items together. The Fantasy unfolds with elegance and fury, a musical epic beautifully delineated. The Toccata is playful and authoritative."—LA Times

"The Schumann Toccata here is, of course, an enormously demanding work and Wild plays through it with note-perfect accuracy and brilliance. Wild negotiates the thorny difficulties of the Études Symphoniques with great ease but the Fantasie is the highlight of this CD."—Fanfare
