Notes & Reviews:

A graduate of Duke and Eastman, pianist/composer Walter Saul is the recipient of 23 ASCAP awards and designated Composer of the Year by both the North Carolina and Oregon Music Teachers Associations. He is on the faculty at Fresno Pacific University, where he teaches piano, theory, composition, music history and music appreciation.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
Saul's music ranges from the jazzy amiability of the Allegro semplice finale of his Sonata 5 to the ambitious musical theology embodied in 'On the Transfiguration of the Lord Jesus Christ'. The sound in the other pieces is tighter and less reverberant. Saul is an excellent pianist and a skillful executant of his own works.
