“What a wonderful pianist Anthony Goldstone is. He makes every one of these pieces sound its best – better than I’ve ever heard before… a great musical interpreter.” – Lehman (American Record Guide)
"Goldstone's fans (and he has many, world-wide) will know to expect exemplary presentation with illuminating liner notes, and this is no exception. Buy, and you will not have any regrets!" - Peter Grahame Woolf (Musical Pointers)
“Goldstone’s performance on this CD is excellent and makes each one of these works fresh, vital and essential. The programme notes are good and the sound quality is great. I recommend this disc to all lovers of British music and also to enthusiasts of piano music” – John France (MusicWeb)
“Goldstone’s playing is immaculate and the recording quality superb.” – Geoffrey Crankshaw (Musical Opinion)
“Be glad that Goldstone explores so far off the beaten path, finds so many interesting things along the way, and plays them with such lucidity and sensitivity.” Performance ×××× Sound ×××× - Stephen Johnson (BBC Music Magazine)
