"The auspices are good even before you press the play button...The Four Rhapsodies, while having almost identical timings to Roscoe's first-rate earlier performances, are now more subtly characterised...this is a particularly happy start to the series."
(Gramophone)

"If [Dohnányi] is now slightly out of fashion, he is brought back firmly into the spotlight by Martin Roscoe's splendid first disc of a projected series of the solo piano music...Roscoe finds the ideal blend of lightness and broad lyrical sweep...A programme that refreshes some gorgeous, unjustly neglected music." (Daily Telegraph)

"There's something larger than life about the keyboard writing [in Winterreigen], and it demands exactly the kind of no-holds-barred approach that Roscoe adopts; he dispatches the fistfuls of notes with wonderful precision and just the right degree of swagger."
(Guardian)

"The auspices are good even before you press the play button...The Four Rhapsodies, while having almost identical timings to Roscoe's first-rate earlier performances, are now more subtly characterised...this is a particularly happy start to the series."
(Gramophone)

"[in the Rhapsodies] Dohnányi musters a highly expressive language, contrasting the dark and melancholic introversion in the second and fourth rhapsodies with the more playful and heroic moods that characterise the third. Martin Roscoe performs these memorable virtuosic showpieces with tremendous panache and musical sensitivity."
(BBC Music)
