American Record Guide
James Willshire is a fabulous pianist... He has a wide dynamic range and a full palette of tonal and emotional color.
This is a beautifully produced CD in every manner. The sound quality is outstanding, with each nuance of the music being clear. The programme is considerable in both scale and concept...The interpretation of these pieces by James Willshire is everything that could be wished. This is a CD of piano music that is inspiring and challenging.

The composer reveals himself to be admirably equipped in writing for the piano and James Willshire seems an ideal interpreter.
