Notes & Reviews:

'First-rate playing, splendid sound, value for the money' (American Record Guide)

'A worthy continuation of Hyperion's Rachmaninov series' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Their readings are superb, and Hyperion has captured them with crystal clarity' (Classic CD)

'Shelley and Macnamara find the necessary eloquence to bring life to the descriptive passages of the First Suite, and a real driving energy for the Second. The Symphonic Dances works beautifully for two pianos, and is played with consistently compelling sensitivity and flair' (Classic FM Magazine)
