SHAI WOSNER: Schubert and Missy Mazzoli
(Onyx) 
"The pianist Shai Wosner again proves himself a fine Schubertian with a gorgeously phrased and soulful interpretation of the “Moments Musicaux” (D. 780) that traverses the full palette of intimacy and power.

Appropriately sandwiched between the two works is Missy Mazzoli’s alluring “Isabelle Eberhardt’s Dreams of Pianos,” which meshes evocative wisps of Schubert into a turbulent, digitally enhanced soundscape." (Vivien Schweitzer)
