A wonderful collection of Schoenberg piano music here - powerful, masterful and full of emotion at every turn. Of course this style of modernist, often dischordant music is not to everyone's taste, but for anyone of who loves something a bit different, anyone who wants to expand their musical horizons, this is not a bad place to start!

I'm not a great fan of Pollini - I find some of his playing a bit too clinical and mechanical, which often sounds like a player-piano, but this recording of Schönberg's solo piano works impressed me a lot. His keen awareness of the structure of each piece and uncompromisingly polished tone makes for truly gripping account of the music.
