»Bravo calls for an encore ... The pianist Maximilian Schairer, sponsored by Steinway & Sons, presented his first CD "Gloaming - Fantasies for Piano" in a packed Europasaal that evening. The audience was more than enthusiastic. And rightly so. ... He shone in Bayreuth with well-known pieces like Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata" or Mendelssohn Bartholdy's "Scottish Sonata" just as confidently as with Schubert's "Wanderer Fantasy" - a piece that not even the composer himself really dared to play. The Bayreuth audience was enraptured and, shouting bravos, demanded an encore.«
