Notes and Editorial Reviews

'An entertaining and delightful issue' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs) 'A hugely entertaining new disc from Hyperion and a superb introduction to the work of a currently rather underrated composer' (BBC Record Review) 'Performances are simply marvellous. They're quite simply the finest on disc to date for Milhaud's piano music, and in sensational sonics too. Highly recommended' (In Tune, Japan/USA) 'Sparkling performances of catchy music' (The Guardian) 'If you like two-piano music you'll love this disc. There is simply so much to enjoy. Piano discs as uninhibited and infectious as this are few and far between' (Gramophone) 'An entertaining and delightful issue' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs) 'A hugely entertaining new disc from Hyperion and a superb introduction to the work of a currently rather underrated composer' (BBC Record Review) 'Performances are simply marvellous.
