These works are technically and musically demanding and, for one reason or another are rarely ever heard in the concert hall.

"...Wallin expounds all this music with total sympathy and a fine sense of style, Pöntinen is an impeccable partner in his ability to make often complex piano parts sound crystal clear and poetic. It makes an admirable introduction to Reger’s chamber music."
