Notes & Reviews:

"Mr. Lane's playing shimmers with liquid warmth." - The New York Times

'Once again Piers Lane demonstrates his supreme virtuosity and brilliant technique (at times it is quite unbelievable that only ten fingers are at work) ... hugely enjoyable ... ideal fun present for Christmas' (Classic CD)

'Spectacular' 'Pure confectionery of the highest possible quality. Excellent sound, first-rate notes. In sum, Want List material' (Fanfare, USA)

'Pianistiquement irréprochable, sa prestation éclair-cit ces pages touffues et pleines de richesses harmonique ou sonores' (Diapason, France)

'Throughout this collection Mr Lane's playing shimmers with liquid warmth ... his performances hang together out of his evident affection for these scores and the sheer convicton of his playing' (The New York Times)

'Enormous good fun ... and not at all for the serious, self-important person who thinks that music has to be listened to with knotted brow' (Fanfare, USA)
