Something Almost Being Said: Music of Bach and Schubert

“The coupling is apt, as is Dinnerstein's linking of the narrative, vocal quality in both the Schubert Impromptus and the Bach Partitas – the Schubert almost a singing symphony in its wonderful four linked movements, while the Bach's dance movements sound as if they could be cantata arias. What is less impressive here is the actual piano-playing – perfectly tasteful but really a bit stolid” --The Observer, 4th March 2012

“tasteful almost to a fault, with its suggestive programme of Bach and Schubert, plus a title derived from Philip Larkin’s poem The Trees. What magic she weaves from the dancing counterpoint in her Bach partitas (nos 1 and 2), the notes sometimes reduced to two single lines. Bliss!” --The Times, 17th February 2012 ****
