Notes & Reviews:

"The whole audiences sat silent and attentive, transfixed by Virgil's dynamic and musical approach to the transcendent counterpoint of Johann Sebastian Bach...these "Bach Gamut" concerts were tours de force, and I marveled at Virgil's stamina and prodigious technique." -Richard Toreence and Marshall Yaeger, Virgil Fox: The Dish "He tossed off one after another of the monumental preludes, toccatas, fantasies and fugues with comparative ease, permeating them all with pure joy. The audience erupted with spontaneous praise after each of the mighty blockbusters." -Ted Alan Worth, Virgil Fox: The Dish
