Notes & Reviews:

"Krysia Osostowicz and Susan Tomes are wonderful advocates of [the First Sonata's] blend of emotional unpredictability and lyrical charm. Indeed, it seems churlish to wish for greater sensuality from Osostiwcz in the Andante, and a touch more sparkle from the piano in the finale. There are absolutely no caveats about their handling of the rarefied world of the Second Sonata...Always taut, it is hard to imagine a more idiomatic or impassioned performance..." ***** -BBC Music

'Two outstanding performances. A marvellous disc, both as a performance and as a recording' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'One of the most fascinating and persuasive recordings of Fauré ever' (Fanfare, USA)

'A fine disc' (BBC Music Magazine Top 1000 CDs Guide)

'It is hard to imagine a more idiomatic or impassioned performance of this underrated masterpiece' (BBC Music Magazine)
