Notes and Editorial Reviews

Reviews of select volumes included in this set:

Raff: Piano Works, Vol. 1 / Nguyen

A performance of surpassing keyboard artistry and passion.

– American Record Guide

Tra Nguyen couldn't have hoped for a more impressive debut as a solo recording artist and Raff enthusiasts couldn't have hoped for a more persuasive and enjoyable demonstration of the worth of his piano music.

– Raff.org

Raff: Piano Works, Vol. 2 / Nguyen

The pianist proves throughout her recital not only equal to the technical demands of the intellectual intrigues that lurk
Read more everywhere in Raff's music, but also that she has an intuitive sense of expression and phrasing that brings to life the substantial emotional content of the music.

– MusicWeb International

Raff: Piano Works, Vol. 3 / Nguyen

The composer could not have a more impressive and dedicated advocate. Lovers of his music are indeed in the pianist's debt.
