Notes & Reviews:

"The best Gershwin disc to come along in years. Nakamatsu's quicksilver opening run promises a reading that captures the music's elegance and wit as few pianists have since Earl Wild. You'll love this disc!" -Classics Today (10/10)

Gramophone Magazine
The American winner of the 1997 Van Cliburn Competition plays with a spring in his step - and a stylish one at that - and is plainly enjoying himself...

Classics Today
Unquestionably the best Gershwin disc to come along in years... a reading that captures the music's elegance and wit as few pianists have since Earl Wild... Tyzik has a chance to strut his stuff in the Cuban Overture, the best performance of that chestnut to come along in many a moon as well. ... an object lesson in how this music should be conducted. Harmonia Mundi's engineering complements the performances in all formats... You'll love this disc!
