"A pianist by training, Kenneth Hesketh is particularly known for his orchestral compositions, of which Sir Simon Rattle, Vasily Petrenko and Oliver Knussen, among others, are advocates. The four works for piano presented on this disc, magnificently interpreted by the dedicatee of the principal piece, Clare Hammond, extend like a great liquid landscape which, despite the divisions between tracks, compels the listener to hear them in one sitting, so captivating is this music. Superlative sound quality illuminates the ease with which Clare Hammond masters the complexities of this programme."
