Notes and Editorial Reviews

"This absorbing survey of British 20th-century sonatas is remarkable for the totally consistent quality of Alexander Baillie and John Thwaites's playing and the good taste they bring to their interpretations...Baillie's rewardingly intelligent phrasing is matched by Thwaites's warm, generous, perfectly judged pianism." - Stephen Pritchard, The Observer, London, (October 19, 2013) "This absorbing survey of British 20th-century sonatas is remarkable for the totally consistent quality of Alexander Baillie and John Thwaites's playing and the good taste they bring to their interpretations...Baillie's rewardingly intelligent phrasing is matched by Thwaites's warm, generous, perfectly judged pianism." - Stephen Pritchard, The Observer, London, (October 19, 2013) Read less
