Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Superbly crafted, difficult to play, but fun to listen to, the etudes are laced with a dry wit. Brilliant pianist Amy Dissanayake dispatches them with a kind of elegant ferocity that takes your breath away. A splendid introduction to a composer with a fresh, distinctive voice."

— John von Rhein, Chicago Tribune
