'Dame Moura's virtuosity quietly stuns. Her Mendelssohn, Liszt and Litolff are fleet and joyful; Granados's The Maiden and the Nightingale and Debussy's Clair de lune sing from the heart' (BBC Music Magazine)

'The highlight of this collection is the Schumann Symphonic Etudes … each of the variations is well-characterised. There is drama and energy on the one hand, and lyricism and richness of expression on the other, with superb attention to detail…This is an impressive tribute to a fine British pianist' (MusicWeb International)
