February 6-11, 2005: Residency at the University of North Texas, Denton

“It has been a real pleasure to host the two of you this week during a University of North Texas residency. Allen presented in three classes, Madeleine performed an all-Chopin recital and gave a following masterclass, and together you gave two lecture-recitals, one on Messiaen, the other on Liszt's Petrarch settings for piano. In all respects we were thrilled with the quality and interest of your presentations. Allen, your quiet eloquence was captivating, and Madeleine, your artistry was rich and communicative, and the authority both of you brought to the presentation was matchless. Your stay at UNT will be long remembered as a highlight of our academic year.”
