Reviews for 'The Deeper the Blue'

30 January 2020

Favourable reviews coming in for this special recording

I have really enjoyed reading the reviews for this disc, my first with violinist Janet Sung and a return to SOMM Recordings after several years.

BBC Music Magazine described Janet Sung as "superbly partnered by Simon Callaghan who by artful pedalling makes the piano appear to 'bend' its notes in the 'Blues' movement [of the Ravel Sonata]", while The Arts Desk found us "brilliantly deadpan in the hyperactive finale". I'm so glad everyone is enjoying the disc which was a huge undertaking for all involved, and features a veritable feast of repertoire by Kenneth Hesketh, Dutilleux and Vaughan Williams alongside Ravel's masterpiece.
