Notes & Reviews:

MusicWeb International, 24th May 2013
This disc, which wears its concept lightly, offers much thought-provoking pianism. It also alerts us to a conjunction that argues for consonance and lineage in ways that are never pursued beyond the bounds of good musical or historical taste. Beautifully recorded, as ever, from BIS.

BBC Music Magazine, December 2012
Ullen flits with ease between the worlds of the two composers. He brings poetry to both, plenty of flourishes and, for the tottering behemoth towards the end of CantTyodjayG, a suitable swagger. If there is the smallest caveat, it is that a little more space could be given to events...Nonetheless, this is a beautifully provocative recital.
