(About the Performer)

“. . . a pianist to reckon with” – New York Times

“Listening to Cavallaro, one is at once reminded of Glenn Gould, not only because of the tiny chair and bizarre, eccentric mannerisms, but because of the profound sincerity of the performance and the masterful delivery of Sebastien Bach’s music.” – Mexico City (translation)

“His quick wit and deadpan commentary amused and engaged his listeners.” – Southbury, CT

(About the Composer)

“. . . a throwback to Schubert” – Washington Post

“Neo-classical?  These compositions are outright reactionary, though absolutely delightful.” – Chicago

(About the Sonata #1 in D Minor for Violin and Piano (or Harpsichord), Op. 4)

"This is an absolutely outstanding composition. A truly baroque sonata written by a contemporary .... what a relief and pleasure it is to hear some 'real' music composed by a modern-day  composer. It's a wonderful and sincere Sonata that deserves great exposure and attention from music lovers around the world." – Alexander Markov (Paganini Competition prize winner) – New York, January 2014

"It was truly an honor to present the world premier of this 'new' baroque sonata at Lincoln Center. It felt almost as though we were debuting the newly-found work of an 18th century composer." – Dr. Robert Portney, January 2014
