"These two show they understand what it means to bring unbridled passion and fire to a performance that is meant to be fraught with emotion."
- Midwest Record Review

"Ziegler's ingenious arrangements use the full range of both keyboards... melodic and rhythmic leads skipping back and forth between the two pianos... Superb."
- The Age (Australia)
