Notes & Reviews:

An exceptionally versatile pianist, Kathryn Stott is most at home with the French classics. Her style has been described by Grove as `marked by a vivid sense of immediacy and personal communication.` This collection, offered for the first time on budget CD, was specially selected by Gramophone critic Bryce Morrison from Stott's most accomplished recordings of Faure's solo piano works.

Gramophone
A most enjoyable recital, and one for which many listeners will be grateful. What is impressive here is the pianist's integration of fragility and firmness, simplicity and complexity.

BBC Radio 3
Nothing but praise for her playing: Stott is at once so warmly intense, so poetic, so refined. She also draws the loveliest variegated tone from her piano, to which her engineers do full justice throughout the whole gamut.
