Leighton

Piano Works

Margaret Fingerhut plays superbly; more than that, she is obviously thrilled by the nobly Bachian chorale at the centre of the Fantasia and exhilarated by the finger-twisting syncopations of its final fugue and of the fourth Romantic Piece. An extremely rewarding recital.
Gramophone

This fine recital by the ever-adventurous Margaret Fingerhut…There's enough music for Fingerhut to make a second CD, which I hope she will...this CD has been a revelation to me.
Classical CD Reviews, Music on the Web

This is a well-chosen, well-rendered and well-filled anthology. Margaret Fingerhut clearly relishes the technical challenges, while never letting virtuosity get in the way of either clarity or musical sense.
International Record Review

I liked this program so much that…I’ve listened to everything on it many times, with ever increasing pleasure and admiration for Leighton’s music – and for Margaret Fingerhut, who plays with fire and intelligence.
