Excursions Reviews

Selected as one of The Spectator's 10 Best of '96 for Classical albums.

"...It is spectacular...An admirable debut..."    Spectator Magazine

"...Simply terrific...The right mix of profundity and humor; of the familiar and the new...McCallum produces a thrilling Mephisto Waltz No. 1."    The News & Observer

"...A versatile pianist...He demonstrates an outstanding technical facility...In Samuel Barber's Excursions Op. 20 McCallum handles the changing rhythms and cross-rhythms with ease and plays with a sense of fun...McCallum deserves a special commendation for his program notes [which] contribute greatly to the enjoyment of the music."     Independent Weekly

"McCallum's rendering frees the music to deliver all the playfulness and laughter that Mozart wrote into it...[His] playing is powerful as rolling thunder, but it is perfectly channeled and deftly controlled...He perpetuates the notion of the piano concert as a vibrant and stirring modern art form...An entertaining introduction to two hundred years of virtuoso composition."     The Chapel Hill News
