Notes & Reviews:

[From a comparative review with NXS 8.559104] "'A morning in the Woods' is a beautiful piece of keyboard impressionism by any standards, and the late Seventh and Eighth Sonatas contain some marvellous things... The growing clan of Ornstein fanciers will rightly want both discs for their wealth of stimulating and frequently astonishing music, ultimately unlike anyone else's." ***** BBC Music

'A tremendous tribute to a fascinating figure in 20th-century music' (The Daily Telegraph)

'Stimulating and frequently astonishing music, ultimately unlike anyone else's' (BBC Music Magazine)

'This is an essential release...realized with the dazzling virtuosity and preternatural clarity that we have come to expect from the enterprising Canadian... this exhausting, diverse, and technically astonishing recording is not one that I would gladly be without' (Fanfare, USA)

'Marc-André Hamelin plays Ornstein's music with commanding savoir-faire' (The Irish Times)

'Marc-André Hamelin plays magisterially, as ever. He clearly loves this music' (International Record Review)

'A provocative collection, brilliantly played and splendidly engineered' (International Piano)

'Marc-André Hamelin, aussi à l'aise dans les déferlements rythmiques que dans les moments suspendus du temps, nous offer là un disque superbe' (Répertoire, France)

'Marc-André Hamelin is spellbinding in his performance... This CD is an outstanding example of astonishing music' (Hi-Fi Plus)

'It almost goes without saying that Marc-André Hamelin plays the socks off this music, tackling the most knuckle-busting runs and cluster harmonies in Danse Sauvage and its fellow pieces with staggering virtuosity.' (ClassicsToday.com)
