"…A Night at the Opera is a compilation of opera potpourris and fantasies from the nineteenth century. Read should receive four (stars) for his innovative programming alone, but when combined with such confident and tasteful playing, (both of Read's latest CDs) receive our highest recommendations.

In these performances he strikes a perfect balance between brilliant acrobatics and pure song."
