Northern Echo

Divine Art, the South Shields-based record company has been bringing out some excellent solo piano discs in recent months. The latest promises to be the start of all Schubert’s music for solo piano. The first two discs include Impromptus D935, the Sonatas D960, 665 and 894 plus the great “Wanderer” Fantasy. Anthony Goldstone brings a nice sense of shape and flow to the music. Perhaps not with the raptness of a Brendel or Schiff, but still very imaginative and enjoyable. * * * *
