“Delectable flair...a communicativeness that I do not remember having heard...a sensual quality I would not have thought possible ...nuance and flexibility that had this listener thinking of Rachmaninoff’s own recordings...It is rather unusual to encounter a ‘throwback’ and to discover a player who embraces the values of a seemingly long-vanished pianistic style.”

Harris Goldsmith, New York Concert Review


“Dazzling concertgoers with blazing technical skill and captivating them with vulnerable emotional depth...Schrade’s potent mastery of the keyboard-spanning, strength-sapping virtuoso textures brought to mind the playing of Horowitz ... Schrade keeps alive and, in a sense reinvents a venerable tradition of heroic virtuoso performers born in the Liszt-Paganini era of the late 19th century and stretching into the twentieth century with the likes of Paderewski, Rachmaninov, and their contemporaries.”

Clifton J. Noble, Union-News, Springfield, Massachusetts


mastery of one aspect of keyboard playing after another …”

Max Harrison, Musical Opinion, London, UK


“Schrade’s ranks right up there with Bolet, Rodriguez, Wild, and Shelley at the top of the list…

Schrade’s performances are marvelous.”

James Harrington, American Record Guide (Review of “Homage to Chopin” CD)


“An Outstanding Evening [Headline] …So special, here, were the gradations of tone, and those wonderful old-fashioned rubatos. It reminded me of Claudio Arrau, at the height of his performing powers… then the same composer’s Waltz from Gounod’s Faust. I have never heard it played so wonderfully, except by the late György Cziffra”

Bill Newman, Music and Vision Daily, London, UK


“tremendous depth of expressiveness and virtuosity...The pianist’s range is stunning.”

Paul Burton, Bravo Newspaper



Phil Muse, Classical Disc Digest


“… one of the most dynamic, impassioned pianists I’ve seen in live performance in years.”

Dr. Roberta Zlokower, Roberta on the Arts
