Reviews

'Sumptuously recorded. A true and dedicated Francophile … [Kathryn Stott] is clearly among the more stylish and intriguing of all young pianists' (Gramophone)

'A tremendous achievement' (BBC Music Magazine)

'A revelation' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'One of the most purely pleasurable releases of the year so far. The playing is intelligent, persuasive, loving, and the music reaches far beyond the standard boundaries of fin de siècle French salon style. Four outstanding discs' (The Independent)

‘I never expect to hear this music better done’ (Classic FM Magazine)

'She deserves an honoured place beside the most distinguished Fauré exponents … a major achievement in every way' (Classic CD)

'A major contribution to the recorded literature of French piano music, strongly recommended' (Fanfare, USA)

'Cette superbe version insurpassé peut-être quant à la transparence et la musicalité' (Diapason, France)
