"For all of Chang's extroverted, deadly accurate virtuosity, she plays this work as music first, showpiece second."
"She phrases with natural urgency and tames every pianistic beast before her. "
-Cleveland Plain Dealer
"The challenge for the performer is to make these subtle mood shifts and color changes seem natural as well as make the technical passages sound seamless. And pianist Angelin Chang did all of this with style and grace....mesmerizing....magical."
"Invariably excellent...pianist Angelin Chang's alternately prismatic and pointed artistry."
