Notes & Reviews:

"At a time when national styles have all but dissolved into a generalized international goulash, Forte's gorgeous tone and sensuous line evoke classic French pianism...her Maurice Ravel holds its own against interpretations by many of her more celebrated peers, from the chaste simplicity of the Sonatine to the virtuosic 'Gaspard de la Nuit,' in which no prisoners are taken and no notes are dropped." - The New Yorker "Negotiating most of the difficulties of such works as Lizst's 'Dante' Sonata, Stravinsky's 'Trois Mouvements de Petrouchka' and Rachmaninoff's Second Sonata, as Del Parkinson did in his debut Monday night in Carnegie Recital Hall, is no small accomplishment. The Idaho pianist, with advanced degrees from Indiana University and Juilliard, relished the physical expanse of the works, along with their demanding climaxes...Prokofiev's 'Toccata,' in fact, had a sort of gleeful cinematic abandon about it." - New York Times
