Every piece on this album by pianist Romain Nosbaum has a reference to the Portuguese word 'Saudades'. It embodies the desire for a place (Adios a Cuba, Asturias), the soul, the human being (Alma brasileira) or popular manifestations. The music usually has a close connection to dance and is very much connected to the human emotional world.

Romain Nosbaum is an individualist among the pianists of his generation. Without affectation, but with modesty and passionate devotion, the focus is solely on the music. The grand gesture is just as alien to him; he demonstrates instead sheer brilliance - his game captivates instead with intelligence and subtle individuality with technical perfection.

“The music that Romain Nosbaum plays is a matter of the heart. You can feel it with every note. He questions the works, revives them romantically for a few moments and then retreats into the introspection.” - Pizzicato
