“Packing just under 30 minutes into a single, frenetic movement that reflects the painting’s nightmarish figures, Colbert’s piece is explosive, exhilarating and exhausting for both performer and listener.” Lisa MacKinney. Limelight. April 2020.

“…the dynamic energy of Harvey’s performance…Dancing to the Tremors of Time…is almost 29 minutes of the most virtuosic pianism you will ever hear…textural journey that takes the listener into Colbert’s musico-emotional translation of James Gleeson’s famous painting of the same name….” James Nightingale. Fine Music Magazine. March 2020.
