The piano writing is masterfully fluent and virtuosic, [with] satisfying, expressive variety...moods and emotions range from delicate reflection through joyful exuberance. With some exposure a collection like this could have a wide range of applicability for piano recitals of many degrees of sophistication, and could win easy acceptance." -- Fanfare Leonarda Productions, Inc.
