Schoenberg, though brief is a reason enough to own this CD. Here Tarli is brilliant and articulate, allowing the background Romanticism of these pieces to come to the fore.  I would welcome a CD of twentieth-century piano music from Tarli. – HI-FI+ 

Freedom… Tarli…performs…with both style and flair. Some of the highlights of her disc… are magical, such as her fiery, yet at times light-hearted reading of Schumann’s “Aufschwung,” her impassioned way with “In der Nacht,” or the ultimate stillness she creates in the last of Schoenberg’s six pieces. — Scott Noriega, Fanfare

Tarli plays the Moments musicaux with an unaffected directness that allows them to speak with charm and grace. The Fantasiest?cke is… fully mature Schumann, marked by all the arabesque-like keyboard figuration, spontaneous-sounding melodic sweep, Romantic impulse, and technically demanding virtuosity, all of which Tarli demonstrates her mastery of and real feeling for… — Jerry Dubins, Fanfare

I would place Tarli’s readings [of Schoenberg’s Six Piano Pieces Op. 19] on equal footing with those I’ve heard by Roland Pöntinen on BIS and Maurizio Pollini on Deutsche Grammophon, and she is better recorded on this ICSM release than either of them.— Jerry Dubins, Fanfare
