"Five Stars" FonoForum
"Four Stars. Sombre and wistful music, undeservedly forgotten." The Times
"Four Stars. A strong vein of melancholy runs through the first two movements, in which Gál plays frequent homage to Robert Schumann...Matthew Sharp is an impassioned advocate and the English Symphony Orchestra strings under Kenneth Woods, supported by a warmly ambient recording, give committed support." BBC Music Magazine
"Very listenable music, well recorded, to which I shall return with pleasure ... A very successful release" MusicWeb International
Tijmen Huisingh and Matthew Sharp.
