Notes & Reviews:

The CD takes its title from Maw's Music of Memory - an intricate set of variations on a theme from Mendelssohn's String Quartet in A minor. It is coupled with premiere recordings of Maw's Little Suite for Guitar; and Fricker's dramatic, Spanish-inflected Paseo. The recording features two works commissioned by Antonis from Charlotte Bray and Matthew Taylor.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Antonis Hatzinikolaou was born in Greece and got his post-graduate training in the UK. He is a masterly player. No technical or intellectual challenge seems too much for him. He manages to bring warmth to the thorniest passages and plays with a huge range of tone and dynamics. He is barely into his 30s.

BBC Music Magazine, August 2013
Taylor's Fantasy and Northcott's Fantasia, both shot through with ringing, glittering textures, are impressively agile pieces, Northcott's piece particularly challenging technically, without ever resorting to shallow tricks...All in all, a very engaging recital.

Sunday Times, 28th April 2013
This sequence of eight British guitar pieces, played beautifully by a Greek, is almost too fetching. The danger with guitar recitals is of a uniform spread of loveliness...But the attentive one starts to notice that Bayan Northcott's concise Fantasy is far spikier than the 21-minute, felicitous title piece.
