Gramophone 'Editor's Choice'

Press review

This is a strikingly good disc, notable as once for the full-bodied, golden tone of the piano (superbly recorded) and Siirala's ability to hold both long movements and large structures together with playing of refined musicality.
Jeremy Nicholas, Gramophone, August 2004, Editor's Choice
