Review:
“George Walker’s album of concert music is great indeed. The third piano sonata is played exquisitely here…That Walker is also a first-rate pianist is evident in the style of composition. ...If you don’t already own any of George Walker’s music this is a fine first purchase.” (American Record Guide)
