Sophie Dunèr and Guy Livingston at Studio Bababing, Belleville, Paris.
Five Reasons to Listen to Livingston:
Guy Livingston played 'Traficante de Bananas' with the comic talent of a Buster Keaton .
A great performance, visually and musically interesting.
— NRC Handelsblad
'A feast for the eye and for the ear!'
—Viertakt Radio Show Holland
'Antheil's Finest Keyboard Interpreter' —Signal to Noise Magazine
'soloist Guy Livingston acquits himself with panache' —Tempo Magazine
'a rousing performance' —New Music Box
"An exceptionally agile and charismatic performer" — LA Times
Why NOT to listen to Livingston:
"Guy Livingston hurls himself at the keyboard and spares no effort to make a case for an Antheil revival. No fault of his that the music is no more than a dinner plate shattered into period pieces." — Norman Lebrecht
playing cacti based on John Cage's "Child of Tree" (Paris, October 2012)
The recording and performance on this CD are both excellent, and Guy Livingston deserves praise for championing the works of a composer who is being forgotten today. — SEQUENZA 21

'a masterful new recording' —Raymond Tuttle, Fanfare, December 2006

Aleph, Verge Ensembles
The Verge Ensemble, the adventurous new-music group in residence at the Corcoran Gallery, joined forces with the Paris-based Ensemble Aleph on Friday for a concert at the Embassy of France that demonstrated the value of trans-Atlantic cooperation in areas beyond mere trade and politics. Mingling their personnel, the two groups gave a nod to the past with a graceful reading of Ravel's Piano Trio in A Minor, but focused on edgier works written in the last decade or two.

This disc [Gabriela Imreh plays Piano Transcriptions] also has the benefit of including witty and personable liner notes by fellow pianist Guy Livingston, a cut above the usual dry recitation of facts known and oft repeated about the literature in the program.
