“Marilyn Nonken negotiates the immense technical and musical challenges of these works in remarkable fashion. This well recorded disc is self-recommending to readers who will know from this review whether they will be receptive to music of this sort. However self-recommending it may be, though, I recommend it too.”
David DeBoor Canfield - Fanfare
"... There is not a pianist playing today who can bring more subtlety and energy to the music of Fineberg and Dufort than does Marilyn Nonken. Her voicings are exquisite , her pedaling throughout is a model to be studied, and, where necessary, her virtuosity is equaled only by the insight and passion with which every piece is imbued. The recording is excellent, capturing every burst of light and color as it decays through every shade of sound and silence... this is an absolutely essential piano disc, a worthy addition to the library of anyone interested in recent piano explorations, rendered with vitality and intellectual rigor in perfect balance."
Marc Medwin - Fanfare - March/April 2015
“Marilyn Nonken is a persuasive advocate for spectral music ... [she] has followed her outstanding 2CD set of Murail’s complete piano music with [this disc]. Dense, mercilessly virtuosic writing ... Nonken handles the incremental tension superbly.”
Graham Lock - International Piano magazine
