“Canadian composers, past and present, are blessed to have a champion as finely skilled and genuinely dedicated as Elaine Keillor, a veteran touring pianist as well as mentor, scholar and author whose six-decade career shows no sign of abatement. (On this beautifully recorded disc, she performs on her own American Steinway piano and her playing illustrates the easy virtuoso assurance one associates with keyboard artists playing their own preferred instrument.) Born in London, Ontario, trained primarily in Toronto and now a Distinguished Research Professor Emerita with Ottawa’s Carleton University, Dr. Keillor’s performing and writing have focused on Canadian composers including two among her own mentors. …” Charles Pope on Concerto.net

“These diverse works use a variety of pianistic techniques to realize their literary or pictorial inspirations. … Overall, Keillor plays with sensitivity and color, and the CD presents an interesting soundscape of contemporary piano repertoire. “ Lucy Mauro in the IAWM Journal (2016)
