Reviews

'Ranks honourably among the best available … Watkin has the advantage of outstanding continuo support and a recording of surpassing beauty and unexaggerated perspectives. If faced with a choice I'd opt for David Watkin's consistently articulate playing, the decisive criterion being Hyperion's rapturously seductive sound' (BBC Music Magazine Top 1000 CDs Guide)
