Reviews

Gramophone

All in all an impressive and rewarding collection given exceptionally vivid recording

” —Ivan March

Graham Whettam’s piano music – solo or duet – is strong stuff, and played with effortless and convincing solidity by Goldstone and Clemmow. The recording is excellent. I have been mightily impressed by this new release… I sincerely hope this CD will receive the broadcast attention it deserves… with Graham Whettam’s 80th birthday in 2007 he is by all accounts long overdue for some extra recognition.

Every piece is superbly performed… a rich and natural recording. Each work is fine indeed… and in the case of the first piece Night Music the word outstanding comes to mind. A splendid disc.
