Notes & Reviews:

New remastering and annotation distinguish this reissue of a 1992 release on CRI with the addition of historic private recordings made by Gunnar Johansen of Collins' music. This adds to the existing seven volumes previously released by Albany Records of this Chicago composer's music.

"Here we have volume one of a ten disc series...All of the works are for piano and solo with the obvious exception of the string quartet movement. I found it influenced by the famous pair of quartets by Debussy and Revel, but still an original and very enjoyable...They are very good performances and between the two pianists, we get a complete set of six 'Valses Characteristiques'. This is a good inaugural release in a series that will explore the complete works of a lesser American composer. "-American Record Guide
