Reviews

'The simplest songs, often unpromising on the page, are done with touching ingenuousness and candour. Both singers are natural storytellers with a twinkling sense of fun' (BBC Music Magazine)

'In the piano pieces and songs alike, Johnson plays with luminous tone and a natural feeling for Schumannesque rubato. And as ever, his sleeve notes alone are worth the price of the disc' (The Daily Telegraph)

'Lott, Murray and Johnson tap stright into that tender warmth and intimacy—and there's the perpetual sense that these performers are close friends who love making music together' (Classic FM Magazine)

'As you can probably gather from what I've written thus far, there's so much to enjoy and think about on this disc that it's hard to know just what to single out for further discussion or praise. Since every bit of the music is presented as winningly as possible, all in warm, natural sound that perfectly complements the Gestalt of the material, let me therefore just speed you toward your nearest vendor by saying that this disc could not be more highly recommended' (Fanfare, USA)
