Notes & Reviews:

"Stojowski could hardly have found a better interpreter than Jonathan Plowright, who plays with affection, understanding and sometimes breathtaking virtuosity." ***** - Calcum MacDonald BBC

'This is a simply tremendous release... A truly great recording, an award-winner if ever I heard one' (International Record Review)

'Jonathan Plowright's performances are a rare example of technical and musical integrity... both sound and balance are natural and exemplary' (Gramophone)

'A composer with a strong personal identity that never falls back on the commonplace or routine. Jonathan Plowright is on breathtaking form' (International Piano)

'This is a welcome addition to the Romantic Piano Concerto series that Hyperion is issuing. Jonathan Plowright plays both concertos brilliantly, and Martyn Brabbins leads the orchestra enthusiastically. The sound is superb' (American Record Guide)

'Jonathan Plowright has the chops and instinct for this kind of music... The first piano concerto alone would make this new release a must for mavens of neglected Romantic era works. However, its companion piece takes matters entirely to a new level. Stojowski's Piano Concerto No. 2 deserves to be far better known, and this recording supplies an excellent introduction' (Fanfare, USA)

'Stojowski could hardly have found a better interpreter than Jonathan Plowright, who plays with affection, understanding and sometimes breathtaking virtuosity' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Jonathan Plowright and Martyn Brabbins give both works an ardency that's all the more persuasive for its detail of light and shade' (The Irish Times)
