„...Joseph-Maurice Weder’s view of the Liszt Sonata, presented as a single track, unfolds magisterially in detail...much to admire in the Schumann, not least
The German Online Magazine Klassik.com writes about Joseph-Maurice Weder:
„...Joseph-Maurice Weder convinces with a noble tone and with inspired virtuosity. The interaction with the Berlin Camerata is emphatic, as there is a clear diction of making music and a slender overall sound prevail... the soloist shows his lyrical qualities - delicate, contoured, emotionally conclusive. The virtuosity.... he takes effortlessly... A sonically and interpretatively attractive recording...“

".... couldn't have asked for a better artist to record than Joseph-Maurice Weder. The 29 years old Swiss pianist cultivates, among other things, a beauifully centered tone of bell-like clarity that is ideally suited for MDG's audiophile credo. His command of piano technique is so pervasive that he does not make a great issue of it, and he is free to address the two vastly different works on the present program in purely musical and interpretive terms. And his sense of timing is absolutely flawless..."
"...Joseph-Maurice Weder presents on his first solo album two very popular works - Liszt b minor Sonata and Schumann Kinderszenen Op. 15 - and has to meet the challenge of the pianistic elite (Argerich, Arrau, Brendel). Thanks to his imagination of sound and structural vision he can be considered in that environment. A sensitive and thoughtful debut!..."
