Gramophone Magazine

“It's a treat to be able to hail a new version of comparable charisma and temperament from Ashley Wass….With his immaculate touch, subtle range of colour and commanding technique, Wass draws every ounce of poetry from [the music].”

Financial Times

“Wass achieves the same wonders with Alwyn (1905-85) as he did earlier this year with Frank Bridge…. A charming disc.”

BBC Music Magazine

February 2008


“Ashley Wass plays everything with exemplary command, relishing the music's sonority and engaging disarmingly with the nondescript smaller items.”

Gramophone Magazine

February 2008

“Wass turns on the magic for this first instalment of Alwyn's piano music”
