^Young, John Bell. Schubert: Unfinished Piano Sonatas: D 279, 571, 613, 625, 840. American Record Guide. 1998, 62 (2): 194. It's always gratifying to hear the underrated or rarely played music of a major composer. But it is no less satisfying to discover, for the first time, a great pianist at the helm of such works. I'd heard of Berman, who is Present in his 60s, but had never heard him. He is the quintessential musician's musician and, it seems, a product of the same central European tradition that produced Klien, Brendel, Wuhrer, Petri, Demus, and Fischer. [...] This disc does double duty, in that it offers an eminently rewarding musical experience and introduces one of the premier Schubert interpreters of our time.
