"...a very wisely assembled recital of music...Zucker has a full, rich sound coupled with an impressive technique. Zucker's virtuosity is best demonstrated in Borne's difficult Fantasy on Themes from Carmen. There is also a virtuosity which is found inthe playing of a melody with a singing legato and beautiful phrasing.....a thoroughly enjoyable recording..."
"...the best music-making with Shapiro happens in the Romances disc in the Schumann and Nielsen. The Romances disc has clever programming: the Faure and Gaubert are placed next to each other, and it becomes instantly obvious that Gaubert stole the opening notes of his Romance from Faure's Romance Sans Paroles No. 3."
