Notes & Reviews:

Pianist Phillip Evans's special affinity for the music of Béla Bartók was acknowledged by the late, Pulitzer prize-winning critic Harold Schonberg in his important book The Great Pianists: "Phillip Evans in Bartók, Roslyn Tureck in Bach." His series of Bartók CDs received extraordinary reviews, such as the following from George Jellinek of The New York Times: "Evans played both Sonatas with searching insight, in total triumph over their technical difficulties...he plays superbly." Highlights of this release, Phillip Evans Plays Bartók, include evocations of nature at night (crickets, bird calls, bat wings) in Out of Doors and an elegy to Debussy in Improvisations. A music critic for several major South Florida newspapers, he is a faculty member at Lynn University, and has also served on the faculties of NYU, Hofstra, CUNY, Michigan State University, and the Harid Conservatory.
