“The centrepiece is a wide-ranging and intelligent interpretation of the Diabelli Variations. Guembes-Buchanan marries an awareness of the style of each variation with a fine feeling for the work’s architecture. Her strong fingerwork ensures that the crispness of the so-called ‘Don Giovanni’ variation is magnificent. By contrast, the simplicity of Variation 30 offers a key to her depth and rigour. The second disc is finer still. Guembes-Buchanan is expert at finding the character of each Bagatelle, while her fluency, when required, is ideal. It is not exaggerating to put these readings up there with the likes of Brendel, Serkin and Schnabel. A sense of musicological rigour, too, hangs over the enterprise, with detailed, footnoted booklet notes by the pianist herself.”

“This is a most important and, in its way, significant release: I do not know if Hoffmann’s Sonatas have been recorded before - I have never encountered them, either live or on disc – but the result here, alongside Schumann’s Kreisleriana in a beautifully-proportioned recording, is a set of discs that shed new light on the music of the first half of the 19th-century in Germany. On this showing, Hoffmann’s music would seem to be ripe for rediscovery, in which case this issue will come to be seen as having performed a signal service.”

“I cannot recommend this album highly enough. But then again, I can’t recall a recording by Guembes-Buchanan that I haven’t recommended highly. She is one of the most gifted and interesting pianists on the scene today, and nearly everything she releases bears the stamp of genius.”
