Notes & Reviews:

Joel Fan's third release for Reference Recordings, this time with orchestra! Mr. Fan scored two consecutive Billboard Top 10s with his solo CDs, World Keys and West of the Sun, so expect great things from this one!

Fan is just marvelous ... A well-curated, excellently engineered program of this caliber warrants our highest recommendation.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
Very enjoyable! A program of short showpieces for piano and orchestra, some well-known and some not so well known, like the works by Ricardo Castro Herrera and Charles Wakefield Cadman. It sure beats another disc of standard romantic concertos. Reference's sonics are reference quality, spacious and open.
