Reviews

New Classics

Eloquently persuasive performances of Williamson’s unusual and finely crafted works

” —John Pitts
Fanfare

McLachlan reacts to the varied moods like a pianist chameleon. Those tempted to explore Williamson’s music will not be disappointed

” —Colin Clarke
Pianist

Nobody can fault the musical brilliance of the performance. Williamson is best in his shorter pieces, in which a small idea is often transformed into surprisingly fine-shaped patterns… his mastery of the sonata form is unquestioned. Grab [the three CDs] with the hope of many volumes to follow.
