"Humor and grace. It was a brilliant and virtuoso performance...stunning throughout...beautiful playing." (The Diapason)
"I wanted you to know how wonderful Peter's concert was--it was absolutely incredible. People are still calling and emailing to thank me for bringing him back to Atlanta." (Jeffrey Bush, Immaculate Heart of Mary Church, Atlanta, presenter 2009)
"A serious, exceedingly skillful classical musician who knows how to balance high culture and popular populist selections, and who has a highly developed sense of fun....one of America's most experienced performers....produces expressive effects that defy the commoner's understanding of the pipe organ. Breathtaking." (The Diapason)
"It was splendid entertainment."
(Tahoe Daily Tribune, Reno NV)
"Music making of the highest order...rich in nuance and virtuosity...Bravo Peter Richard Conte!"
(The American Organist)
"Conte is a performer in the best tradition: flawless technique combined with showmanship with just enough restraint...great fun to hear."
"Peter Conte has the feeling for this music and the technique to bring it off splendidly....right on the mark...perfectly paced and styled."
"Thank you so much for your outstanding performance. Your program was quite exciting and entertaining, and your playing was amazing, as usual. We have heard nothing but rave reviews for your thrilling recital. You have the rare gift to be able to communicate through the organ and are so innately musical that you make the music sound perfectly natural and beautiful."
"A sparkling, often lighthearted concert of organ compositions and transcriptions. Conte led off his ebullient romp through Broadway and Victorian-era Boston (with a layover in Bayreuth, Germany)
with his own quirky transcription of Berstein's
Overture to 'Candide'....Mixture of levity and technical brilliance." (The Birmingham News AL)
"It goes without saying that he gives a first-rate performance" (The Diapason)
