The history of fantasy stretches back over centuries and dates back to the Renaissance. Almost all great composers tried their hand at this genre, each giving it a personal touch. With fantasies by Frédéric Chopin, Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy, and Robert Schumann, Amit Yahav presents several highlights of this musical form on his new CD. The Israeli pianist completed his doctorate in London on the subject of Chopin and chose for his CD recording, among others, the composer's posthumously published Fantaisie Impromptu Op. 66 from a manuscript with Chopin's handwriting—a worthwhile discovery!

"Es sind die unterschiedlichen "Register", mit denen er (...) überzeugt, die freie und lebendige Interpretation und die üppige Vielfalt an Klangfarben (...). Mit einem immer passenden Anschlag, mal perlend, mal getupft, lässt Amit Yahav den ganzen Kosmos der frei-improvisatorisch komponierten Fantasien entstehen. Große Klasse!"
Rezension von Isabel Fedrizzi, Ausgabe 6, November/Dezember 2020.

Musicweb International
These are all demanding works and I need to say straightaway that Yahav has a superb technique which makes light of the many difficulties and does not draw attention to itself. (…) Yahav is well recorded and writes his own sleeve-note. (…) [His] recital stands up well und will give pleasure.
