- Review refers to VR 4001 - Bach & VR 6013 - Schubert
"...The quality of the recorded sound is superlative and it does full justice to de Waal’s prismatic sonority. The organ-like bass and remarkable sustain of the pianist’s Steinway instrument much be heard to be believed. If you love piano musi, you own it to yourself to hear these discs. I very much hope that Valthermond Recordings will be releasing more of de Waal’s work."

Performance **** Sonics *****
"A wonderful issue of a tragic momento... de Waal draws glowing tone that really sings - it is quite something to treasure on this score alone.... no one recordig can hold all the answers but if one wants to hear a highly enjoyable account of the sonata that sounds as if it is being played in ones home, you won’t go far wrong."

"...This marvellous performance is of Schubert the controlled master craftsman, rather than Franz the uncertain genius and secret hell-raiser... A unique and valuable testament".
