“Thompson’s performance showed not only an exquisite technique, but a depth of spirit. What emerged throughout the performance was his ability to communicate with the audience.” - Susan L. Peña - Reading Eagle
“Thompson brings a very personal and wonderfully original approach to all his music making and this is allied to a technique second to none. It makes the music fresh, dynamic and fascinating both in the details and in the grand scope and sweep of the composer’s conceptions.” - Hugh Fraser - Hamilton Spectator
