Notes & Reviews:

"Goldstone and Clemmow not only negotiate the fistfuls of notes with aplomb but convey their palpable delight in these fluent, high-spirited performances, vividly recorded, and enthusiastically recommended to Alkanophiles and lovers of bravura piano repertoire alike." -Gramophone

Gramophone Magazine Editor's Choice - April 2011

"Alkan (1813-88) always seems to have something up his creative sleeve to delight the curious listener, and so it is here...Anthony Goldstone and Caroline Clemmow are technically on top of things and are unanimous to a fault." -International Record Review
