“The ideal classical record review evaluates the music first, then the performance, and then the sound. Having never heard of Nancy Green, or Frederick Moyer, or JRI Recordings, or indeed Lee, New Hampshire, I have been obliged to keep playing this recording over and over again to convince myself I have not been dreaming. But in fact I have been wide-awake each time. I have been obliged to keep playing this recording over and over again to convince myself I have not been dreaming…The music is terrific. The performances are terrific. The sound is terrific…The performances, besides being technically top-rank, adjust to the distinctive style of each piece; a veritable demonstration of ‘idiomatic performance’ in every case.” FANFARE MAGAZINE July/August, 2000

“Nancy Green's outgoing, romantic style recalls Jacqueline Du Pre…Green and Moyer play all this with a fine blend of passion and control…excellent in every way…this has a special excellence. Invest!” AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE

“…impressively striking and rhapsodic…Green carries off her role as expertly as the music's (Britten Sonata) dedicatee, Mstislav Rostropovich. Moyer is similarly up to the challenges throughout.” 21ST CENTURY MUSIC

“Green acquits herself quite well, nailing all the special effects while also playing a lush legato line in the (Debussy) sonata's early passages…breathlessly passionate…brilliant…Both (Green and Moyer) have technique to spare, and a gift for seamless phrasing. Green dazzles in the Debussy Sonata, while Moyer is especially impressive in the Britten Sonata's scherzo…In sum, this is a carefully programmed and nicely played recital disc.” FANFARE
