Welton Jones (San Diego Union-Tribune, music critic): "Later composers, particularly John La Montaine, who was represented by his Sonata for Piano, Four Hands, seem to have made better use of this medium..... greater sonority and harmonic richness, and commanding percussive and dynamic possibilities of two players at one keyboard. La Montaine's Sonata was a handsome piece in many ways, and it amounted to a visceral experience."

Although two parts are not needed for performance, there are two copies of the score included in this set in order to facilitate individual practice.
