Baltimore AGO Chapter News “… a performer in the best sense of the word … Such a great artist … Such a wonderful program.”

BLOOMINGTON, IN “Fishell’s mastery of all the material was breathtaking. The harmonic statements, the complex ornamentations, the fugal developments, the gentle interludes, the powerful climaxes, the passionate exhortations, the technical challenges to fingers and feet, the artistic spirit and spiritual aura: all were convincingly present at this opening recital.”
