Notes & Reviews:

After receiving excellent reviews in Gramophone, International Record Review and American Record Guide for his CDs "Chopin: Ballades and Fantasies," and "A Schubert Recital" on the Blue Griffin label, acclaimed pianist Peter Miyamoto continues his traversal of piano masterworks. This CD presents diverse program that includes Bach's Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue, Sonatas by Beethoven and Berg, Jeux d'eau by Ravel, and Chopin's Scherzo No. 3.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
This recital program shows Miyamoto's versatility. His interpretive choices always radiate good sense, not to mention considerable virtuosity and warmth. Fluid and expressive, Miyamoto's Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue shows flawless technique and clarity of voices. His attention to detail in the Berg sonata underscores the rich chromaticism of the work. To a very intimate and sensitive Piano Sonata 30 he brings a refreshing lyricism. Miyamoto has an especially delicate touch here and in a brilliantly articulated Jeux d'eau, capturing Ravel's cascades and sprays with his careful pedaling. Lovely recording.
