Notes & Reviews:

Blair McMillen has established himself as one of the most versatile and sought-after young pianists today. The New York Times has called his playing "lustrous," "riveting," and "brilliant... prodigiously accomplished and exciting." Known for imaginative and daring programming, he plays a repertoire that spans from late medieval keyboard manuscripts to today's up-and-coming younger generation of composers.
