Notes & Reviews:

This CD, an award-sponsored recording of the Classical Recording Foundation, features the 30-year old piano virtuoso, Orion Weiss, performing three cycles of short pieces. In these performances Weiss draws an astonishing range of color and poetry from his instrument. Orion Weiss has performed with orchestras including the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony, New World Symphony, Vancouver Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, Cleveland Orchestra, and the New York Philharmonic. In 2005, he toured Israel with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Itzhak Perlman and in 2009 toured China with the Pittsburgh Symphony. Weiss was a member of the Chamber Music Society Two program of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and has performed duo-piano recitals with, among others, Emanuel Ax and Weiss's wife, Anna Polonsky. In 1999 he won the Gilmore Young Artist Award; in 2001 the Mieczyslaw Munz Award at the Juilliard School; in 2002 an Avery Fisher Career Grant; and in 2005, Juilliard's William Petschek Award.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
At 77 minutes, this well-produced disc is a bargain. The recording is clear and realistic; it sounds like we are hearing a real piano. As usual, Bridge offers thorough, lively notes.
