Harry van der Wal
Harry’s classical music corner, March 2017

I am admiring Endres ever since he recorded Schubert’s sonatas and those from Mozart. They were showered with critical acclaim, and with good reason. He might not be a household name, but he sure is one of the best pianists we have. And this is apparent with the fine music on this disc, not readily associated with Weber. Precious few people heard this side of Weber. These are highly dramatic piano works, and still in the shadow of his opera works. A colourful romanticism, that can be heard throughout these very virtuosic works. …These works took me by surprise by their sheer virtuosity and an overflow of musical ideas, brilliantly worked out in these powerful sonatas. They are in dire need of a renaissance!

I am duly impressed with the performances, they are highly polished but played with such force, that it leaves me breathless at his flawless technique. This man is a magician. © 2017 Harry’s classical music corner Read complete review
