Children’s eyes become wide with amazement when they hear Tobias Koch’s new Genuin double CD release “Piano Music for the Young”: Combining the familiar with never-before heard works, the CDs include the opus 68 Album for the Young and the world premiere recording of Birthday Album for Marie. With each succeeding track, listeners find themselves more and more captivated with the wonderful miniatures and with Tobias Koch’s transparent tone on historical pianos from Schumann's lifetime. It would almost seem appropriate to add to Schumann’s Advice for Young Musicians: “Listen to your Koch once a day ...”

"This set too includes some first recordings, so it is an essential buy for serious Schumann lovers."
Read the review in the International Record Review, Issue October 2010!

"If this is not a small treasure trove, then none exist. Especially given that a large portion of the works are never included in so-called “complete recordings” of Schumann’s works for piano."
NDR, CD-Tipp

"With a refined sense of tonal production and discriminating feeling for this fragile music, Tobias Koch makes an especially beautiful contribution to the Schumann Year 2010 on two wonderful period pianofortes from the 1840s."
Concerti, 7/2010

"...excellent recording..."
"The surprising disregard for Album für die Jugend makes Koch´s work a timely contribution, bringing its forgotten charm to our attention."
Read the profound review essay "Robert Schumann Recordings on Perion Pianos in the Bicentennial Year" in the magazine Keyboard Perspectives III (2010).
