'A superb recital … provoking astonishment that music of such quality could have lain neglected for so long. No praise could be high enough for Piers Lane whose playing throughout is of a superb musical intelligence, sensitivity and scintillating brilliance' (Gramophone)

'Piers Lane surpasses himself, and the recorded sound is delicious' (BBC Music Magazine)

'A total triumph. Another important addition to the piano discography from enterprising Hyperion' (Classic CD)

'Some fascinating music. If 1998 produces a finer piano disc, I shall be astonished. Buy it!' (Musical Opinion)
