BBC Music Magazine Critics Choice 1998

This is a sublime and vigorously enthralling disc of folk-inspired works from one of the most important living composers. The half-hour FolkloreII (1993-4) is an unequivocal masterpiece which deserves a place in every collection. The accompanying miniatures span Finnissy’s output, some dating from his early teenage years and demonstrating a precocious maturity. Finnissy’s accounts raise questions for other performers, but the beauty of the playing and the music are never in doubt.
