Notes & Reviews:
BBC Music Magazine, November 2012
McCawley's beautifully recorded Brahms recital strikes exactly the right balance between the monumental, intimate and light-hearted aspects of the composer's piano output...Among his strengths is the way he imaginatively draws out different nuances the second time the material is heard.
Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2012
Leon McCawley is less of a big-picture person than a detail maven. Cases in point: his affectionate accentuations and inner voices in Var 2, the strict adherence to Brahms's dynamics and articulations in Vars 7 and 10 (easier said than some)...McCawley lets his hair down in the Waltzes...Clearly McCawley's artistry is evolving.
