Comments by listeners and critics


"Thank you so much for your great performance. We really enjoyed it." - Opus 1 Music Studio


"I enjoyed Robert Gans' performance of his own Dreamscapes.... virtuoso pieces in a neo romantic style that has deep roots in American music.  Gans is at his best when most daring...."                   Christopher Hyde, Portland Press Herald


"Doorways is great, I am really enjoying it. Your playing is fantastic and the selection of music is wonderful. I will be buying more of your CDs."


"Soundscape for piano and Rhapsodic Variations played by the composer, Robert Gans showed that the romantic style is alive and well at the conservatory." - Portland Press Herald


"Thanks so much for sharing your orchestra compositions with me.  They are amazing pieces!!  They really should be heard!"


"The Streets of Portland is a fun filled nod to the Victorian era with enhancing musical accompaniment by Robert Gans."  - Portland Press Herald
