He had this to say:  “Ann Sweeten’s music continues to evolve, broaden and deepen. It’s now beyond doubt that her prodigious performances are equaled by her brilliant compositional skills. This is an artist very much at the top of her game and everything has come together seamlessly in her new CD, In the Wake.”   One of the most decorated pianists of the past decade, she is also one of the most played modern instrumentalists in North America. Sweeten blends stylish, sophisticated, technical composition in well-rooted classical themes with originality and passion, resulting in performances that pack an emotional wallop.
