[Piano Concerto No.2 is] fresh and tuneful, redolent of Mendelssohn and Saint-Saëns. Donna Amato’s scintillating performance is entirely winning, and she is equally persuasive in the a minor Concerto. This music needs polish and elegance as well as fire and Paul Freeman’s accompaniments supply all three. … [The recording] has an agreeable ambient warmth. Highly rewarding coupling in all respects.” – Penguin Guide
