Review: 2 February, 2002 in Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall

“…There are concerts when the stars align such that one leaves this dimension entirely and for a blissful span resides in some world that is more beautiful, more profound, than anything imaginable…Mr. Kettlewell’s contribution was of stunningly beautiful substance, his playing a continuum of every nuance, and replete with the variegated textures and colors that swim and sparkle in this repertoire…Kettlewell delivered a glittering performance of Ravel’s Sonatine for piano solo. I’ve rarely heard the Steinway at Weill sound so good as he was able to coax it…The true spirit of the Mouvement de Menuet…walked elegantly in his care…” – Review by Darrell Rosenbluth in the New York Concert Review
