Shards, Piano Music of Jonathan Pieslak, as
performed by Robert Auler


“This beautiful recording of the piano music of Jonathan Pieslak, played with extraordinary rhythmic clarity and expression…assured, instantly communicative musical language, fluidly and lovingly rendered by Mr. Auler.”
The New York Times


“Pianist Robert Auler is in fine form throughout the disc, bringing out plenty of subtleties and nuance in these pieces. He is also fully up to the considerable technical demands of many of these works.”

"The performance was truly electrifying—the type of thing that causes hair to stand up and eyes to water."
