Notes & Reviews:

David Rakowski's piano Etudes have found their greatest champion in Amy Briggs. This is the American pianist's third volume devoted to these fascinating works (the first two were released under her former name, Amy Dissanayake). Both earlier volumes received critical acclaim for their virtuosity and grasp of Rakowski's wide-ranging and at times, loony musical world. (Vol. 1: BDG 9121; Vol. 2: BDG 9157).

”Amy Briggs has technique to spare and burn- which is precisely what she does through the whole program. She is a fabulous pianist, and admirably attuned to Rakowski’s vision. At times, she can be a little too unremittingly steely for my taste, but I frankly think this is what the composer wants, and she’s following his lead. Sound, as usual for Bridge, is superb.”-Fanfare
