“A commanding album with Anderszewski demonstrating quite remarkable pianism in four of the finest works written for the instrument . . . With playing of such elevated musicianship, Anderszewski is in remarkable form providing a recital of a very special quality.” — MusicWeb International

“All the performances show the lucitiy and objectivity that have always been such outstanding qualities of Anderszewski’s playing . . . He brings the same qualities to a touching performance of Schumann’s last piano work, the so-called Ghost Variations.” — The Guardian

Exploring a “precious connection” between Mozart and Schumann, Polish pianist Piotr Anderszewski presents Fantaisies — a reflective album of gorgeous piano works inspired by the idea of the fantasy rather than the genre itself.
