The peerless András Schiff in his first recital recording of Janacek's piano music. The "story-telling " piano pieces chosen by Schiff can be closely related to Bartók's "Mikrokosmos" and have a similarly timeless appeal. As writer Rob Cowan notes, "No matter how many times you listen to these gems, the sum effect of emotional engagement, wonderment and love of life is as lasting as one's admiration for the music's miniaturist construction. They are truly 'the world in a grain of sand'."
