"In the ripe old age of 85, I think we have to keep the child in us because we're always looking for something new and exciting, never become jaded."
"Byron Janis has been responsible for some of the most memorable pianism this reviewer has ever experienced."
John Von Rhein, Chicago Tribune
"You don't want to be a second Horowitz. You want to be a first Janis."
"This genial interpreter takes us away.... far, very far, in this mysterious universe, where music takes on its pure dimensions! If there is a pianist that merits being called a "magician", it is surely Byron Janis."
" he has achieved a leval of excellence hardly excelled by Horowitz himself . Both men reached the summit of technical perfection. Janis has - in addition- his own kind of chiseled fire and dazzling command of every note he touches."
"...Byron Janis plays Chopin with an interior quality that pierces the heart...blinding with truth for those who can see the invisible...A Chopin where you will be forever changed."
LeMonde de la Musique, December 1996
"Truly a remarkable person, Mr. Janis pursues his passion through performing, composing and the advancement of music therapy."
Charles P Melone, Jr. M.D
