Journal of Association of Anglican Musicians ”Eric … renders with flash and élan. The sound is remarkably clear and distortion-free at all dynaminc levels.“ – Victor Hill

The American Organist The large instrument, which has endured its share of controversy, is in its element here. It is superbly captured by Pro Organo … Plutz’s extraordinary musicianship and dexterous command allow him to perform the most challenging passages (of which there are many!) with apparent ease. … These performances give the originals a run for their money. What fun! – James Hildreth

The American Record Guide Plutz has programmed some thrilling transcriptions of overtures and rousing orchestral encores … All of these pieces are a joy to listen to. … The heart and sould of the program is the Carnival of the Animals. … The work comes to a close with a brief two-minute finale that joyously includes pulling out all the stops (har-har, I had to say it), including an earth-shaking 32-foot contra-monstrosity. I enjoy every minute of this recording each time I listen, and I recommend it to anyone else who wants a smile on his face. – Schwartz Jan/Feb 2010
