“Among other things, Myra Melford is a master in the art of wringing sound out of color and line. An insatiably inventive pianist and composer, she has always found sustenance in modern art — notably the subversive, scribbly works of Cy Twombly.” - Nate Chinen
“This feels like the beginning of an exciting new chapter for Melford.” - Stewart Smith
