Robert Avalon at the piano (ca. 1988) 

"Brilliant, rhapsodic, solid construction and dominion of form. There is bravado and passion. The music never stalls -it flows forever forward.

Sylvia Lamoutte,music critic, San Juan, Puerto Rico

"...a compelling sense of logic and momentum... vividly contrasting dynamics...tension builds inexorably to fierce climaxes...a gift for melodic line and a secure approach to structure and development." 

Diane Windeler, music critic, San Antonio Light

 "...soaring melodies...The music made a big emotional impact...a gift for broad, compelling melodies and building the tension of a movement to a resounding peak...fresh, innocent exuberance." 

Charles Ward, Houston Chronicle
