The sheer technical accomplishment in Ravel’s Gaspard de la Nuit (one of the hardest scores in solo keyboard literature) is stunning and the real strength of the disc
— Michael White, Music Critic, The Telegraph UK
100% professional, and better than some concert pianists on the circuit today
— Pianist Magazine
A dazzling performance of superb musicianship ... an energisingly brittle and scintillating account of Beethoven’s Waldstein sonata ... a standing ovation was a fitting conclusion
— Eastern Daily Press
Particularly impressive
— International Piano Magazine
A bravura performance of Rachmaninov’s Third piano concerto which stunned the audience
— Haverhill Echo
