The Cell - a 21st Century Salon (NYC)

“I love the relentless nervousness and persistency in Stainless and Staining, the tribute to the traditional pianistic writing style and clever use of quotations in the Wind-Up Bird Chronicles, the dreamy nostalgia of Hoyt-Schermerhorn, the joy of Piano Counterpoint, and I’m so excited to see what Florent will come up with in Poor Margie.  It is a really diverse program that showcases a wonderful segment of piano composition over the last few years.” —Vicky Chow
