Disc - After You, Mr. Gershwin!

« I am really impressed with your outstanding interpretation of my Sonatina. Your technical command is most accomplished and your understanding of my phrasing is really profound. I specially like your imaginative approach to the last movement: I know that my tempo markings are often ambiguous, and you and your brilliant pianist have found a convincing way to deal with that ambiguity! »

Disc - After You, Mr. Gershwin!

« Thanks very much for your terrific CD! I've enjoyed listening to it several times - a great selection of pieces and so musically played by both of you. I really enjoy the way you and Jean have clicked together both on the grooving parts of the album and especially on the more rubato elements - a lot of thought has gone obviously into this album. Oh, and faultless technique too...»

André Moisan, guest conductor for Debut Series
