Great Stuff,” (The Washington Post). Of Fadial’s recording of the Complete Brahms Sonatas with pianist Andrew Harley of the Eastman School (Centaur), Peter Burwasser of Fanfare writes, “Rich tone and elegant phrasing…John Fadial gives us, dare I say, cleaner readings than those from…Stern. 5 Stars: a fresh rendition…by a pair of elegant artists….” “(Fadial) moves effortlessly among the composer’s subtle moods, voicing sentiment, melancholy, wistfulness and joyful lyricism with utter naturalness…5 Stars: …these could hardly be bettered” (Huntly Dent, Fanfare).
