Notes & Reviews:

"Canadian Michel Bettez proves himself quite the virtuoso in this appealing, well-recorded program. His French sound is plump and ripe, his technical ability sharpened to a very high degree. All the music is worthwhile, with the Longo Suite and Hurlstone Sonata...particularly welcome...Pianist Aubin is more than just along for the ride, with well-attuned, carefully planned accompaniments that match Bettez's intentions to a tee..." -Ritter, ARG
