REVIEWS

‘ .. an exceptionally fine issue celebrating John McCabe’s 60th birthday, that not only serves as a superb tribute to McCabe the composer, but also his prowess as a pianist and interpreter,’ Michael Stewart, Gramophone

‘The Haydn Variations (in effect a sonata, and a massive one, in variation form) is rather close to a masterpiece, I think, endlessly absorbing…’ Michael Oliver, Classic CD
