'The three pieces of Estampes are similarly eloquently voiced, where 'La soirée dans Grenade' is suitably agitated, every change of mood unostentatiously communicated. Throughout the lighter Children’s Corner, the rhythms are beautifully delineated, the textures hyper-refined and the final 'Cake-walk' is unusually powerful … the recording captures most of Osborne’s huge dynamic range and there is excellent clarity and definition' (Audiophile Audition, USA)
