"The excellent and inquisitive Israeli-born pianist Benjamin Hochman pays homage to Schubert with vibrant and stylish accounts of the gentle Sonata in A (D. 664) and the ebullient Sonata in D (D. 850). He includes daring works by two major living composers written in tribute to Schubert: Gyorgy Kurtag’s short, mercurial piece “Hommage à Schubert” and Jörg Widmann’s inventive, 12-minute “Idyll und Abgrund,” which takes bits of Schubert and filters them through a strange, sometimes audacious contemporary prism."

Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times
