Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Donald Betts’ proven abilities and long experience as a soloist enable him as a composer to speak the piano’s language with a natural expressiveness and intensity and to develop the instrument’s idioms imaginatively along 20th century lines...In my view these compositions occupy a place of their own in the repertory of 20th century keyboard music." - Henry Brant, Composer "Donald Betts’ proven abilities and long experience as a soloist enable him as a composer to speak the piano’s language with a natural expressiveness and intensity and to develop the instrument’s idioms imaginatively along 20th century lines...In my view these compositions occupy a place of their own in the repertory of 20th century keyboard music." - Henry Brant, Composer Read less
