Reviews
 

EDITOR’S CHOICE – This very enjoyable Butterworth selection, on Stone’s own label, finds him at the top of his game – secure and expressive. (Gramophone)

CONNOISSEURS’ CHOICE – Wonderful in every possible way. (Classic FM New CD Show)

In many ways, this is one of the most significant CDs of English Music to have been issued for a long time. (Musical Opinion)

Stone and his pianist, Stephen Barlow, treat the songs with ­intelligence and sensitivity. (The Guardian)
