Dances for Piano and Orchestra is Superb

The Classical Reviewer's Bruce Reader declares Joel Fan's performances on Dances for Piano and Orchestra “superb”:

“Some superbly laid out chords open Gabriel Pierné’s (1863-1937) Fantaisie-ballet, Op. 6 showing, immediately, Joel Fan’s fine technique. He brings a great breadth and assurance before the orchestra enter to take the music forward. … Mexican concert pianist and composer Ricardo Castro Herrera’s (1864-1907) Vals Capricho, Op. 1 brings an opportunity for Joel Fan to display his lovely touch in this wonderfully written waltz… When the tempo and dynamics suddenly take off, this pianist is terrific, displaying playing of such fine articulation, rhythmic awareness, fine phrasing and light, delicate touch; quite superb. There are further fine orchestral moments with some particularly fine woodwind passages clearly heard in this fine recording. This pianist reveals passages of fine breadth and sweep, showing a great subtlety and fine rubato. A terrific performance. … This is a terrific new release with, in my download, a detailed recording full of depth, space and detail.” —Bruce Reader, The Classical Reviewer
