Review "Sunday┬┤s must substantial number, after the Debussy, was Variations on Chick Coreas LA FIESTA by Danish composer Kim Helweg......good, clean, fun. Plucked piano strings and rapped piano lids added to the sense of occasion. The end was long in build-up; a grand splash of colour when it came." (Independet)

"An exciting, barnstorming piece. I can well imagine it bringing the house down in the recital room."
(Gramophone)

"It is impossible to escape the sheer virility of the Corea piece - unashamedly Spanish in idiom but laced with a colourful spikiness and plenty of dash."
(Pianoforte Magazine)
