"One of the finest British pianists of his generation" - Gramophone
"Charles Owen offers deep insight into Brahms' late piano music ... textures are miraculous, tempos perfectly judged; but his highest achievement is to make the listener forget there is a middleman. It is almost as if Brahms speaks directly to us." - International Piano CD of the Week, Brahms Late Piano Music, AV2397
"Owen hits the nail on the head ... he makes it sparkle ... it's very stylish, very faithful ... Excellent" - BBC Radio 3 Record Review, Johann Sebastian Bach: Six Keyboard Partitas, AV2366
"Exemplary. Classic. Spellbinding. And enthusiastically recommended." - Fanfare, Fauré Complete Nocturnes, AV2133
