William Dart reviewed the CD for the New Zealand Herald.
‘When a virtuoso is called for, Wong Doe is your man. This fascinating range of New Zealand landscapes magnificently caught in a recording that no Kiwi CD player should be without. If you buy just one classical CD this year, make it Landscape Preludes.’
