Notes & Reviews:

The pianist Simon Smith is noted for his performances of the landmarks of contemporary classical piano repertoire and with this insightful collection of sonatas composed by the contemporary Ukrainian composer Valentin Silvestrov casts a fascinating light on both the formative and later Silvestrov canon, one that is unique for its spatial qualities.

BBC Music Magazine, December 2015
Simon Smith's engagingly performed and atmospherically recorded recital offers a fascinating insight into the composer's development from the 1960s through to the 1980s.

Sunday Times, 22nd November 2015
In Smith's hands, this work captivates in both moment and span.
