" [McHale] finds a range of keyboard colours [in these works], making their individual sound-worlds seem unexpectedly subtle and rich…"– BBC Music Magazine

"…elegant sensibility, and bright, even-fingered articulation that was instantly engaging…" - Hilary Finch, The Times

"…all of the music comes to life through the singing sensibility of McHale's sensitive and polished pianism, captured in a warmly ambient recording. In short, it's easy to recommend such a highly distinct and imaginatively presented release…" - Gramophone
