Notes & Reviews:

"Demidenko brings enormous gravitas and spirituality. The fire and dash he lavishes on the quicker movements make this highly enjoyable disc no less exciting than any of his Medtner, Chopin or Rachmaninov releases on Hyperion." - Hi Fi News (UK)

'Eloquent and sensitive performances of some of the finest British chamber works of our century' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Outstandingly beautiful playing ... of beguiling sensitivity and exhilaration' (CDReview)

'This was always a fine recording, and to have it in such great sonic shape again for a reasonable outlay is a double blessing indeed. This is music of rich evocation, provocatively played here...we are lucky to have this superb reading by the Coull, who have this music in their blood...The sound is top grade Hyperion, and the program fills a huge gap in the discography' (Audiophile Audition)
