As a college student years ago, I heard Perahia perform the Kreisleriana. It was a magical performance, one I haven't forgotten almost 25 years later. It inspired me to study the work, and since that time I have searched for a recording and interpretation of Kreisleriana that reminded me of that performance. When I discovered this Perahia recording, I thought my search would be at an end. Alas! It hints at, but doesn't quite measure up to that performance of long ago. Yet it is the closest I have found, and beats the others I have heard by a long shot.

Of the many different recordings of Kreisleriana I have heard throughout the years, this is one of the best I have ever heard. Perahia brilliantly shines in his rendition of Schumann's set of eight fantasies for the piano. His playing echos with fire, passion, humor, and longing. In the second movement of Kreisleriana, he gives some his most poetic playing. His performance overall is outstanding, poignant, and searching. Of the Sonata No. 1 in F-sharp minor, I cannot say too many good things about, as the piece itself suffers from some inherent problems. Of Schumann's earlier pieces, the first sonata seems scattered and unfocused. It does not readily compare to other similar pieces by Schubert or Brahms. Perahia, however, manages to somewhat salvage this flawed piece.
