“A most welcome and, in its own way, important disc – admirers of British twentieth-century music should certainly acquire it,” Robert Matthew-Walker, International Record Review

“Malcolm Binns’s lyrical freshness and technical brilliance – the flair of his performances, too – make an excellent case for the composer,” Stephen Plaistow, Gramophone

“Malcolm Binns…meets the fearsome challenge of Piggott’s piano writing head-on and emerges triumphant,” Martin Anderson, International Piano

“This is all fascinating music by a highly individual musician… It is played persuasively and expertly by an artist who really understands its ruminative intricacies, and very naturally recorded,” Penguin Guide to Compact Discs

“Binns’s performances seem exemplary…these are cogent and passionate readings, beautifully recorded,” Calum MacDonald, Tempo
