the playing - intelligent and competent as before......the Fourth Sonata is at least, by my reckoning, easily the finest of the six....capturing the idealistic fervour of the early Soviet era in an idiom coloured by Scriabin, Prokofiev.....this is precisely the kind of enterprise that young artists and small companies should be encouraged to pursue.” - Gramophone

middle of the Sonatine is dark and pessimistic, quite haunting. McLachlan writes of the “enormous tactile pleasure” for the performer...his playing is both authoritative and persuasive. Perhaps this is the record to try first as both the sonatas .. are of interest and substance” - Penguin Guide 3 stars
