Notes & Reviews:

Canadian pianist Peter Longworth has established himself as one of the most sought after performers of his generation. Equally comfortable as soloist and chamber musician, he has performed in cities around the world, including New York, Chicago, London, Montreal and Vancouver. Through his work as a private teacher at the Glenn Gould School in Toronto, and as one of the key facilitators of the chamber music and collaborative programs, he has influenced many of the most gifted young musicians of the next generation.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
This is apparently another solo debut recording, this time by a Canadian artist long associated with the Duke Trio. On hearing this recording I would say that his Brahms is superior to Gould's. Less linear and definitely warmer, more romantic in tone than Gould. At the same time I hear a much gentler temperament at work in all of these Capriccios and Intermezzos. Once again we encounter Brahms without any of the heaviness or turgidity so prevalent in many earlier recordings. The sound from Koerner Hall in downtown Toronto complements the performance very well, and the notes do what they are supposed to do. This can be easily enjoyed and is most pleasurable.
