Reviews:

“This menagerie of assorted piano works depicting the fantastical imagery of various animals and insects covers a wide ranging panoply of styles and techniques, and makes for a comprehensive insight into how composers from different eras perceived the natural order of things. Let's hope that this debut solo CD by Taiwanese pianist Hsiang Tu is a harbinger of more to come.” - Classical Music Sentinel

“In pianist Hsiang Tu’s wonderfully chosen Menagerie disc, listeners can enjoy a covey of critters without ever having to leave their most comfortable chair.” - JWR

“I enjoyed this disc and found its CD sound to be infinitely better than much of the sound heard on downloads. I hope readers will want to own Hsiang Tu’s delightful Bestiary on Ivory with its excellent musical pictures.” - Fanfare
