"alternately grand and intimately beautiful ... the result recalls the grand concertos of yore ... ravishing."
Wall Street Journal
“Mr. Lindberg’s work, in three distinct movements, teases music lovers with homages to Ravel and Debussy, Prokofiev and Rachmaninoff, Liszt and, in the finale, Gershwin. But in doing so, the composer achieves that rarest of admixtures, a work that recalls the greatness of others while creating a sound world entirely his own.”
“The interplay between soloist and orchestra is superbly balanced—neither party seems shortchanged at any point—and Mr. Lindberg’s cadenzas for Ms. Wang in the first and second movements prove spellbinding, not least because they require all manner of subtle dynamic shifts that produce a hitherto unappreciated kaleidoscopic quality in the pianist’s tone.”
San Francisco Chronicle
“There’s a vibrancy and inventive energy to his music”
“Most striking, perhaps, are the two cadenzas Lindberg includes for the soloist—long, virtuosic stretches of unaccompanied piano music that bring the listener up close with Lindberg’s harmonic fluency and rhythmic inventiveness.”
San Francisco Classical Voice
“Runs, leaps, and heavy chords are all in the Rachmaninoff virtuoso manner”
