'[Martin] plays poetically throughout, and this for me is an unmissable collection' (The Mail on Sunday)

'You may wonder when you last heard such beguiling, fine-toned fluency … this is a delectable disc finely recorded' (Gramophone)

'Played by Philip Martin with winning insouciance' (The Independent)

'Martin makes for a sensitive, sympathetic guide … this release is a veritable treasure trove for the pianophile' (International Record Review)

'A repertoire that makes for a welcome family evening around the piano; alas for us all that we cannot offer renderings of such sympathetic finesse and lyrical elegance as are here set down by Philip Martin ‘at home’' (Classic FM)

'This repertoire is as delightful to listen to as it is to play … perfect evening listening' (Classic FM Magazine)

'If you’ve ever struggled through Badarzewska’s Maiden’s Prayer, tripped yourself up in Dvořák’s Humoresque in G flat, or wondered how the simple lines of MacDowell’s To a wild rose would sound in capable, smooth-contoured professional hands, this is the disc for you' (The Irish Times)

'Philip Martin is a pianist of great intelligence and much innate musicality; and the excellence of the recording is the final element in the equation for success' (MusicWeb International)

'77 minutes de bonheur pur sucre pour nous faire oublier la morosité de la rentrée!' (Répertoire, France)
