Dance critic Marian Horosko praised Josu Gallastegui's debut American release for its "brilliant, focused, percussive sound." Former New York City Ballet soloist George Lee called it "a stunning new standard for music in this field." With 20 selections by Beethoven, Gounod, Liszt, and others, Piano Music for Ballet includes accompaniment for full barre and center, but many dancers say they want this recording for the pli" music alone.
