Reviews

(...) From a pedagogical perspective, the technical challenges are very healthy, while the range of tempo and key makes for contrasting musical pictures, all valuable for teaching. Bravo once more on an excellent issue.”
International Piano Magazine No. 44, July/August 2017 (Murray McLachlan)

(...) The music generally lies comfortably under the hand and is highly patterned, making it easy to learn.
Pianist Magazine June-July 2017 (Michael MacMillan)
