„Fast durchweg Ersteinspielungen ... das großartige Klavierwerk in mustergültiger Aufnahmetechnik und in überzeugender Interpretation”

“‘A woman’s place is in the home.’ So the saying goes, but Clara Schumann, one of the great pianists of the nineteenth century, had a better idea. The selections, most of them premiere recordings, offer us a close and illuminating look at her compositional art and the family musical context in which she lived and worked.”
