She is a veritable powerhouse. Allied to a peerless technique, Wirssaladze’s vision take us on a compelling journey through two of Schumann’s most demanding works. Schumann is alive and raging in her powerful hands. The Sonata comes close to bursting it seems, but her all-encompassing mastering holds it together. This pianist draws us in by the sheer force of her conviction.
