Reviews

'Here’s something a little bit special to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the death of Percy Grainger … Grainger was a charismatic pianist and also a discographic pioneer. He was entrusted with some important ‘first ever’ recordings … this set will appeal both to collectors of historic piano recordings, but also to admirers of the composer … the transfers have been effected with great skill by Ward Marston [and] the fine booklet note is by that doyen of Grainger biographers and scholars, John Bird. So, a wonderful set' (MusicWeb International)» More

'The best of Grainger’s shellac efforts retain their vividness and communicative immediacy. Even if Grainger had never met and befriended Grieg, his interpretations of the composer still would bear an 'authentic' imprimatur for their rhythmic verve, nervous energy, and bold projection of melodies' (ClassicsToday.com)» More
