Notes & Reviews:

The three works on this second volume of Raff's piano works come from the very pinnacle of his career. The 1871 Fantasie Sonata is a fascinating and richly imaginative hybrid, whilst the Variations on an Original Theme is marked by fertility of invention. The Four Piano Pieces exemplifies Raff's gift for lyricism and characterization.

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
Nguyen plays well. Alan Becker, who had many positive things to say about her as recently as July/August 2012, found her approach "beguiling". That's the perfect word. More important than her warm tone, the notes drip with emotion. There's also good control of form and solid stability that comes from real arm support.
