Notes & Reviews:
Having recently suffered a series of career threatening injuries, pianist Margaret Fingerhut once again finds her 'song'. This album is an eclectic and highly personal collection of song-like encores for piano, featuring, alongside John Metcalf's lyrical title piece, works by Mendelssohn, Liszt, Gershwin, Poulenc, Albéniz, Guastavino, Rachmaninoff, and Suk.
American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Fingerhut strikes just the right tone and approach no matter what the composer's world is all about. Yes, all of these encores are romantic. With Jessica Duchin's complete notes and the rich Chandos sound, I could only wish for more encores.
