Alice Wilkinson
Debussy Preludes, Book II

My aunt, Alice Wilkinson, has released a second CD of her piano performances. Again I may be biased, but I’m not the only one who appreciates her talent. A quote from the New York Concert Review in June/July, 1994 stated:

“Poise and dignity … emphasized form smoothly and lyrically … finely developed technique … bursts of lush tonality.”
