Review by Dr. Suzanne Knosp, Professor of Dance, University of Arizona
"There is tremendous variety in both key area and harmonic progressions among these works. In addition, there are many different forms and styles represented....Her adagios are particularly beautiful, poignant and sometimes haunting. Her contemporary harmonies and unusual melodic rhythms in some of the works are engaging and, I suspect, would intrigue the dancers. I find Professor Wilcox's melodies, particularly in the lyrical works, to be highly original. In addition, her style of playing, which provides supportive articulation, dynamics and emotional intent, I think would be an inspiration for both teachers and dancers. It is important for the ballet pianist to convey a wide variety of expressive intent for the dance; wit, pathos, joy, beauty, nobility, etc. Wilcox captures many of these and more through her performance. Wilcox provides very clear introductions for each exercise which set the stage well for the dancer to begin. She has given the dancers a variety of tempos, which are within an appropriate range for the designated exercises and her tempos are steady, yet provide the sense of breath which is so important to the development of the dance artist. I would highly recommend this CD to any ballet pedagogue teaching any level. There is a clarity in each composition that I think would benefit the beginning level dance student and inspire an advanced dancer. "
