"I have been a fan of the wonderful pianist John O'Conor since I first heard him live here in St. Louis. It was an unforgettable recital and I bought as many CD's of his that he had out at the time and have continued to add to my collection. Mr. O'Conor has a marvelously lyrical way of phrasing which seems to be almost like singing at times. This CD, Autumn Songs, is a great favorite of mine and I've given it as a present to several of my friends. I am a piano teacher and often play pieces from Mr. O'Conor's oeuvre to show a student how a great pianist would perform. This CD has such beautiful selections, and I especially love Mr. O'Conor's interpretation of "Duetto" from Mendelssohn's Song Without Words and "Warum?" and "Romance in F-sharp" by Schumann. Any music lover will enjoy this gorgeous CD. Give yourself a great gift and buy it."
Beautiful solo piano

"Irish pianist John O'Conor has eloquent phrasing, and impeccable technique. And this album is proof of that...21 beautiful songs, played as only a pianist of the highest caliber can play them. This album is very highly recommended. You don't have to be a classical connossieur to enjoy it...I most certainly am not. A lot of the pieces are very familiar, and as you hear them, you may find yourself saying "Oh, I know that song". This is the album that opened me up to more classical works, and since aquiring this, I have purchased more works by the composers on this album."
