A revelatory version of a Tchaikovsky symphony…a major discovery..a cracking performance…gloriously played…mind-blowing

There are several good reasons to buy this fascinating programme…The impeccable precision, tonal allure and stylish panache of Goldstone and Clemmow’s playing is sheer pleasure, and they are handsomely recorded

” —Jeremy Nicholas

Goldstone and Clemmow bring a satisfying tensile energy and spring to their reading show themselves keenly attuned to the ebb and flow of music, and to each other. The recording is natural and reverberant, with no distortion and full bloom around the keyboards. This disc is great fun; seek it out!

” —Frank Behrens

a tour-de-force…Goldstone & Clemmow bring a subtle intimacy to the music that is really wonderful…pristine presentation, copious notes and stunning recording…. A superb disc

” —Gerald Fenech

Marvellous recording featuring familiar music in unfamiliar form … astonishing performance of Tchaikovsky’ Symphony No. 4… to say that the first movement contains some barnstorming pianism is an understatement. Wonderful pianism … great transcriptions … beautiful natural piano sound.

Highly enjoyable…well worth hearing ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
