Notes & Reviews:

Judith Lang Zaimont's acclaimed music embraces a wide variety of forms. One of her earliest works is Nocturne: La fin de siècle, written as a 'personal valentine to the great pianist-composers of the Romantic Era'. Rich in contrast, perfect in form, it provides a deeply enriching listening experience. A Calendar Set (1978) charts the months of the year with imagination and precision, whilst the introduction of carols and familiar songs adds to the setting's lyricism. Sonata was completed in 2000 and is one of her most challenging works - atmospheric, quite impressionistic in places, and ending with a brilliantly virtuosic finale.

Christopher Atzinger is an Associate Professor of Piano at St Olaf College in Minnesota. He has performed in Germany, Austria, Italy, England, France, Spain, and Canada in addition to performances throughout the United States highlighted by concerts at New York's Carnegie Hall (Weill) and the Phillips Collection in Washington.

Fanfare Magazine, September/October 2012
Zaimont has composed a good deal of music for the keyboard. Her piano music represents much of her strongest work, and some pieces - such as A Calendar Set - have attained a well-earned popularity.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
Atzinger is perfect for this music; he handles the difficulties admirably and paints the drama clearly. Sonics are full if not resplendent. Notes in English by the pianist.
