Format: Audio CD
*Ignore the [DVD Audio] bit. These are Super Audio Compact Discs. I have attempted to change Amazon's description.

Klara Wurtz is carving out a niche for herself, and these recordings are a superb testimonial to her talents.

Disc 1 is a selection of Mozart piano sonatas, nos. 11-14, from her complete recording.
Disc 2 contains 2 Schubert sonatas and an allegro for 4 hands, with Pieter Van Winkel.
Disc 3 has Schumann's Kreisleriana and Fantaisie in C. Apparently Klara Wurtz intends recording all of Schumann's piano works.
Disc 4 adds 2 orchestras, the National Symphony Orchestra of the Ukraine conducted by Vladimir Sirenko in Rachmaninov's second piano concerto, and the Nordwestdeutsche Philharmonie conducted by Arie van Beek in Schumann's A minor concerto.
Disc 5 is a showcase for her virtuosity, with (from my point of view!) fiendishly difficult works by Liszt, Schubert, Schumann, Chopin and Debussy.
3 of the discs are over 70 minutes long, and the remaining 2 over 60.
Ms Wurtz's technique is exceptionally fine, and she is able to characterise all the various music on these recordings sympathetically and with insight. Her fingerwork on Disc 5 is enough to make an amateur like myself weep with jealousy, and I have rarely enjoyed hearing these works as much as I did on this disc.

It appears from the notes that the recordings were made on an eight-track recorder at 44.1KHz/24 bit PCM and remixed into 5 channels. This has resulted in excellent (SACD surround) sound on the solo items, full in frequency and dynamic range, albeit with a large amount of reverberation that doesn't quite cause significant blurring.
