Review By Olin Chism,Dallas Morning News and Orlando Sentinel,

"Many composers have written piano duets, but the greatest and most consistent was probably Schubert. Only Mozart, who composed fewer, is in his league. Schubert's output may be explained by the fact that he had few opportunities for orchestral performances during his lifetime.

Naxos is releasing a series of CDs devoted to Schubert's piano-duet music. The third volume, with Jeno Jand and Zsuzsa Kollar as the performers, is a good survey of the variety of Schubert's output.

One of the pieces is great: the Fantasy in F minor, D. 940. This 17-minute work approaches the profundity of Schubert's last piano sonatas, with wonderful melodic material and a sense of melancholy lurking under the surface.


Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

The Hungarian pianist Jeno Jandó with his colleague Zsuzsa Kollar gives a magnetic reading of what by any reckoning is the greatest of all piano duets, Schubert’s haunting F minor Fantasia, with its inspired telescoping of a four-movement structure. With Jandó and partner, nothing distracts one from the beauty of Schubert’s writing, and the lesser pieces, including the dramatic Overture in F and some delectable dances and marches, have comparable freshness, cleanly recorded.
