'The recording is intimate, the performance full of wit and nuance—coquettish delays at cadences, flexible tempi that never lose a sense of dancing pulse. Although such an archival collection is meant for dipping into, I found myself listening to the complete discs in two sittings' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Nothing short of a revelation. I can honestly say that I have never heard these sonatas so imaginatively performed, nor so stunningly executed as on this beautifully recorded pair of discs. A splendid achievement all round' (CDReview)
