“Muen Wei is superb in each “confection,” sweeping aside all difficulties—and there are many for less well- equipped pianists—in performances redolent of the spirit of the age. The famous tunes are always beautifully phrased, shining through the potentially obscurant haze of filigree and devious complications devised by the several authors. It is with great pleasure that I commend her performance to anyone who responds to pianistic legerdemain in the service of a waltz.”

March/April 2020, Fanfare

“……All eight are expertly performed by pianist Muen Wei. Her technique is remarkable, some of the playing   is almost demonic, and everything is superb.”

March/April 2020, American Record Guide

“Wei's playing of the delicate entry of the piano over plucked strings was especially delightful, and later on in the movement she contrasted skillfully the legato andantino melody with the explosive central section. In the race-to-the-finish finale, Wei showed admirable virtuosic skills, and she used those skills adroitly to ride the final scalar challenges to a triumphal conclusion along with Hobson and the Sinfonia. This dramatic ending was greeted with lively applause.”
