Unexpectedly delightful. Elegant, sophisticated and wonderfully entertaining. Could be used as background music at a fabulous Chrismas soiree, but what a waste that would be -- Sit and really listen, and you will have a great time.' ---James E. Morgan Producing Artistic Director The York Theatre Company New York, NY 'Great playing.' '[Earl Wentz's] virtuosic approach...has merit. I especially like the arpeggiated opening figures [in O Holy Night] and the way [Wentz] articulate[s] the melody over those....The arrangement builds well...the dynamic contrasts...are well done...' ---TAXI Please scroll down for more reviews and customer comments.
