Notes & Reviews:

"I cannot conceive of a better performance of the two long-neglected concertos. Piers Lane and the BBC Scottish Orchestra, cannily guided by Martin Brabbins, have set high standards for others to follow. And others will follow, I predict. The Stanford first, at very least, should win a place in the standard repertoire and be taken up by an international range of pianists and orchestras." -Fanfare

'The Stanford emerges as an absolute delight' (Piano International)

'Likeable works which are given performances of such conviction that one is thoroughly carried along' (The Scotsman)

'Splendid, eloquent performances in clear, warm sound plus Jeremy Dibble's scholarly notes full of insights about the period of these compositions makes this an issue not to be missed. One is left dumbfounded that the [Parry] concerto could have lain neglected for so long' (Classic CD)

'Sa virtuosité étourdissante, sa fougue, sa large palette sonore, son sens poétique confirment sa position étoile montante du piano britannique' (Diapason, France)

'Dos conciertos magistralmente interpretados por Piers Lane' (CD Compact, Spain)

'Ein Muß für Liebhaber des abseitigen romantisch-schwelgenden Repertoires' (Fono Forum, Germany)

'I cannot conceive of a better performance of these two long-neglected concertos... [I] urge you to take a first step in the rehabilitation of two highly attractive piano concertos by acquiring this wonderful disc' (Fanfare, USA)
