"Revelatory" BBC Music Magazine


"Hushed and flawless Bach..."

The Observer

'Familiar works these may be, but truly exploratory, technically refined and strongly personal performances as here can help us hear them anew. A triumph for David Watkin and the Resonus label.' Gramophone

'This feels like the set I've been waiting years for... his performances are alive with a rare joy, effortless spontaneity, technical precision and imaginative fluency. There couldn't be a better testament to a remarkable musician'                                                                            BBC Music Magazine - July Instrumental Choice
