"Gloria Cheng's new release of works by Esa-Pekka Salonen, Steven Stucky and Witold Lutoslawski is consistently exhilarating. It's not just that Ms. Cheng plays these daunting pieces with such commanding technique, color and imagination. She has brought together works that fascinatingly complement one another." (New York Times, July 6, 2008; to full review)

"... a delight from start to finish, both for its exciting, evocative and beautiful compositions, and for the exceptional pianism of Gloria Cheng, who animates each score with consummate artistry and comprehension. ... I encourage anyone with an interest in contemporary music and exemplary pianism to hear this CD. ... Steven Stucky's notes are as illuminating about the compositions as they are about the aesthetic comradeship linking the composers, and complete a superb release." (Robert Schulslaper, Fanfare, June 2008; to full review)
