Notes & Reviews:

The second release from the highly talented Grace Francis focuses on music of Mussorgsky and Rachmaninov.

BBC Music Magazine
Both these works are delivered with artistry of rare refinement.

The Sunday Times
After an invigorating Mussorgsky Pictures at an Exhibition, Francis offers a deeply observant reading of Rachmaninov's last piano composition, the 1931 Variations on a Theme of Corelli...a new economy of texture is unmistakable, and Francis makes the compact structure fascinating. She follows this satisfyingly with Rachmaninov's pared down 1931 version of his Sonata No. 2 (1913).
