1) Maestro Dominique!  I'm without words in gratitude for your in depth review of Peter's cd. I'll forward it to him and may repost the review in various sources including CD Baby. Much gratitude to Bill for his illustrious medium, AfriClassical Blog. Gentlemen, THANKS. Fredo.  [Fred Onovwerosuoke] 

2) All my honor!  This music, so wonderfully played, could only have been written by one who knows the piano very well, but that's only part of the story -- an essential but only initial start.  I'd be out of my mind to attempt any of these, even my favorite, Manding meditation (II/XXI), which continues to haunt me!  And true, we can all be so thankful that Bill has this door for more information than any book provides.  Dominique-René de Lerma

3) Dear Prof. de Lerma and Mr. Zick:  Thank you both!   Professor de Lerma, your review of our recent CD release featuring my performances of Fred Onovwerosuoke's Twenty-Four Studies in African rhythms is incredibly perceptive and beautifully written. I'm honored by your approval, and grateful for your support of our efforts!  Mr. Zick, thank you for maintaining the AfriClassical blog, a wonderful resource for the music community. [Peter Henderson]
