 John Lill's brilliance makes this an exciting rec August 8, 2013 By Delphine K. (Rozelle, New South Wales) See All My Reviews "I selected this CD over others simply because John Lill was the artist. A pianist who doesn't know what a bad review is because his work is remarkable. Every time I see he is the pianist I have to grab whatever recording it is. I have never been disappointed" Report Abuse
