Here's what they're saying about Homages & Remembrances:

I enjoyed Adler's compositions especially and note the beautiful contribution of the flutist [Cain-Oscar Bergeron]. American Record Guide
Adler has assembled an attractive and diverse program, in which the contemporary pieces will fall gracefully even upon the ears of those who don’t necessarily gravitate toward modern works…Adler interprets Pictures at an Exhibition as a noble tribute to Hartmann and his visual art…An artfully constructed program, admirably performed. I will return to this disc with pleasure. — Fanfare

James Adler plays in an incredibly imaginative way...He succeeds in creating a truly exciting and fascinating interpretation...We could give our readers more details, but the best thing is to listen to the recording. — Pizzicato

Adler’s ['Elegy for Norman'], which is for flute (played by Cain-Oscar Bergeron) and piano, is gentle and rather sweet. — Infodad

James Adler's sound is a real pleasure. — Pizzicato

Mussorgsky’s 'Pictures at an Exhibition'…gets an absolutely first-rate rendition here… he grasps the essence of each miniature and presents it with skill and refinement. — Infodad
