Notes & Reviews:

Music of extraordinary range and power, Ronald Stevenson's Passacaglia on DSCH is the longest single-movement work written for piano. It is a single-minded exploration of its generating motif, the musical "signature" of Dmitri Shostakovich. Rising star James Willshire has the technique to match both the work's grandeur and its immense wealth of detail. Willshire gave Stevenson's 1955 Variations on a Theme of Pizzetti its belated concert premiere just this year, and now commits it to disc as one of a number of première recordings.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
If Mr Stevenson's work is new to you, and you have an interest in the 20th Century piano repertoire, this is a must. This is an important and exhilarating release.
