Penguin Guide
Dickinson has made Satie's music a centrepoint of his repertoire, and his thoughtfull approach to this highly rewarding music is all his own.

Gramophone
Dickinson's recital is recommended in our Good CD Guide and deservedly so. I thought highly of the playing and rich-sounding recording when I first heard it. He expertly conveys the unique blend of humour and gravity in his wide-ranging choice of pieces. An attractive compilation as well as a generous one.
