Hominick’s premiere solo recording of the works of the legendary romantic pianist, Sigismund Thalberg, was released by Titanic Records in 1995. The Chicago Tribune noted that102950 “...Thalberg’s blending of drama and minor-key lyricism is wholly compelling in Hominick’s hands...” Off the Beaten Path, featuring rarely-heard repertoire, was released on MSR Classics in November 2009.
