ABOUT

What others say:
". . . American pianist/organist and composer [Mr. Val] creates a stunning portrait in sound with each of his brilliant and engaging compositions, which transport listeners into a sonic universe that is at times introspective and exhilarating all at once." --------- GlobeSound Records

"It is in that capacity that I first encountered [Mr. Val] in Athens, Greece in November of 1994. Mr. [Val] impressed me and others with a wide range of musical skills: performance ability, an unusual style, an advanced command of the piano, and a wide knowledge of various musical genres. He was equally at home in Pop, Jazz and Classical music styles, which is indeed rare. He possesses a strong work ethic and a true dedication to music." -------------- Larry Monroe - Associate Vice President for International Programs - Berklee College of Music

"I was in for a real treat. When [Mr.] Val performed in front of me and another university music professor, we were both astonished at his maturity of musical conception, his solid technique, and his generously musical interpretations." ------- Dr. William T. McDaniel - Professor at The Ohio State University
