“From the start, Levy’s rhythms are wonderfully mercurial… Levy characteristically combines expressive intensity with formidable technique and impeccable taste… This is a stunning reading, and again an illuminating one.”
Bernard Jacobson

“There is in Levy’s Schubert, nothing to distract the listener from the core musical material…The Moments musicaux are tender and poetic.”
Fanfare, USA

“His performance of one’s music supreme masterpiece is affectionate and absorbing, with a particular response to Schubert’s darker, more elegiac imaginings. The six Moments Musicaux are successful, never leading you in doubt that Levy is a devoted Schubertian… The recordings are impressively refined.”
Gramophone, UK

“Special highlights are the second ‘Andantino’, for its suggestive variety of nuances presented in this delicate lullaby, and the brief dance ‘Allegro Moderato’ (third Moments Musicaux) for its elegant presentation.”
Mundoclásico, Spain
