Notes and Editorial Reviews

4 discs for the price of 3!

"Four CDs of well-textured, luscious, strong-willed music, its influences ranging from Russian church bells to the emotional impact of the Great War. Sympathetic, brilliant playing from Parkin." -- Classic FM Magazine

"This wonderful music ranges from the melodic and folksy to the cragginess of the sonatas. Eric Parkins pianism is beyond praise, and the recording excellent. If you missed this the first time around, grab it now while you can." -- American Record Guide
