Notes & Reviews:

"Jonathan Plowright has already shown his devotion to the composer by recording the two piano concertos, and now he brings equal dedication to a well-chosen selection of solo pieces. He's fully up to all the technical demands of the music - the 'Theme Cracovien Varie', for instance, is almost a compendium of virtuoso devices - but also responds to the tenderness of the chromatic harmonies and yielding melodic lines with affectionate rubato and tonal shading." ***** - Cotton, BBC

'He's fully up to all the demands of the music but also responds to the tenderness of the chromatic harmonies and yielding melodic lines with affectionate rubato and tonal shading ... A delight' (BBC Music Magazine)

'This is an enterprising release that takes us down an unusual and intriguing byway' (International Record Review)

'Those in search of music's Romantic by-ways played with rare authority need look no further, particularly when presented in Hyperion's immaculate sound' (Gramophone)

'The sound quality is rich and life-like, the timings are generous, and detailed liner-notes are provided by Joseph Herter. Given all this, plus the quality of the performances on most selections and the excellence of all the music, this latest release of Stojowski comes highly recommended' (Fanfare, USA)
