No Notes Found.
'Stott uncannily holds the listener's attention throughout, her pianistic colours are warm and often exoctically sensuous, and she is very atmostpherically recorded.'
Gramophone

'Kathryn Sott plays them as if aware of the Alsation penchant for chilling the glass rather than its contents. In musical terms this allows her to maintain a superb balance between clarity and liquefaction and even when the music is enveloppé de pédales' Very highly recommended.'
International Record Review

The sequence, beautifully and unaffectedly played by Kathryn Stott, portrays an imaginary journey that begins in the sultry somnolence of an afternoon siesta and ends with a moonlit night in a deserted square… *****
