Reviews

'Listening to Joyce is strangely addictive. One cannot wait, as it were, to read the next chapter. She shares with Kreisler and Tauber the same unteachable ability to elevate the second-rate to the first-rate, and to illuminate familiar masterpieces with a convincing and unmistakable voice … this is such a cornucopia of good things it is hard to know where to start … full marks all round for an early Award contender' (Gramophone)» More

'The quality that comes across in these performances is the sheer joy of playing. Joyce possessed a formidable technique and an interpretative mind that blended stylish sensibility with passion … Joyce’s breadth as well as her impeccable touch and distinctive artistic personality are valuably recalled here.' (The Telegraph)» More

'The Ballades are simply magnificent, up there with the best. Always warm and well-shaped, they are very complete in their understanding of where the music is going, always convincing in their rubato' (MusicWeb International)
