Notes & Reviews:

International Record Review, September 2013
Tao brings a fresh vitality and terrific momentum to [Gaspard]...this is a thoroughly enjoyable and consistently impressive recording from Tao, blending old with new, conventional with less conventional...There is more than sufficient variety to hold the interest and I must say Tao's compositions are really growing on me.

New York Times, 25th November 2015
All of these pieces, in different ways, evoke images and people through music...Though his account of "Pictures at an Exhibition" is sometimes a little percussive for my taste, he plays it with enormous imagination, color and command.
