Time and again, Schubert appears to tear holes in the space-time continuum. A single Moment Musicaux a few minutes long can seem like an eternity full of pain or joy; a sonata movement of "heavenly lengths" can seem to be over very quickly. We experience both of these on the new GENUIN album with the Lübeck pianist Konstanze Eickhorst, who takes us along into Schubertian abysses with incredible verve. Her interpretations of the Wanderer Fantasy, six Moments Musicaux and the late C-minor Sonata become an existential rollercoaster ride. Two-hundred-year-old music of and for today!

"... each and every time I’ve coe back to these recordings over the past few weeks, I’ve found new things to listen for, new aspects of the music which I had not always heard. through and through there is a sense of rightness with this recording - it is a quality that is difficult to put into words, but one that one feels when listening to these performances. Though this ismy very first exposure to Eickhorst’s art, it will most certainly not be my last."
