Michael Collins and Stephen Hough team up in a Brahms recital.

"I'm sure Michael Collins must have lived with the two Op 120 sonatas for all his professional career. That seems abundantly clear from his superb playing in both of those sonatas. His Brahmsian experience is also evidenced by his highly persuasive and idiomatic adaptation of Op 110. This is a disc which will grace any Brahms collection." MusicWeb

"Even if you already have Collins's first-rate Chandos disc, this beautifully recorded BIS CD is a worthy investment, not least for the exceptionally successful arrangement of the A major Violin Sonata." Gramophone Editor's Choice Feb 2022

"The release marks Collins's 60th birthday later this month, and the sonatas provide a perfect showcase for his creamy tone and superb technical facility; Stephen Hough is the equally immaculate pianist." Guardian
