a "talented, entrepreneurial pianist" - Steve Smith, The New York Times


"It says something about the caliber of pianist Nicholas Phillips's artisty that he's been able to reach a wide, appreciative audience from his home base of Eau Claire, WI, thanks to his excellent recordings." - Time Out New York


"Truly a postmodern pianist" - Time Out Chicago


"Mr. Wickman is a composer of facility and imagination, the kind to whom both performers and audiences respond...Mr. Phillips is an able and persuasive advocate throughout." - Steve Smith, The New York Times


"It's hard to imagine more committed performances of Papandopulo's piano pieces than these" - Howard Goldstein, BBC Music Magazine


"Nicholas Phillips's playing is razor-sharp yet wonderfully spirited, tossing off the most demanding passages with just the offhand aplomb needed to make them at once effortless (as the composer intended) and tonally resplendent" - Lehman, American Record Guide


"The Scherzo fantastico (1932) is a tremendous work, played with bejeweled accuracy by Nicholas Phillips...Rewarding listening." - Colin Clarke, Fanfare Magazine


"Throughout, Phillips navigates Wickman's fleet rhythmic and timbral shifts as one who as internalized these scores with a great deal of empathy. This is an album of both stunning breadth and poise." - Doyle Armbrust, Time Out Chicago
