Reviews

'Coombs is clearly equipped to face the most prodigious demands … this is a most impressive and highly enjoyable release' (BBC Music Magazine)

'A dazzling series of salon and genre pieces full of the easy charm and winning tunefulness that also mark Glazunov's ballet The Seasons. Stephen Coombs proves a most persuasive advocate, consistently conveying sheer joy in keyboard virtuosity … which gives magic to pieces which might otherwise seem trivial. It makes a feast for any lover of piano music' (The Guardian)

'Stephen Coombs se révèle être un défenseur convaincu de ce répertoire qu'il aborde avec des moyens digitaux et une poésie remarquables' (Diapason, France)
