Praise for American Visions:
.....a real technical tour de force.
"[Ian Gindes] plays music by American composers in both popular and ‘classical’ realms with affection, energy, and keyboard brilliance…Gindes brings to each piece a freshness that prompts us to love this music anew."
~ Donald Rosenberg, Gramophone
[Gindes] has a beautiful sound, full, luminous, and detailed. [He] performs American music with a sensitivity we usually associate with renditions of the European Romantic masters.
