“one of the truly great recordings of the Waldstein Sonata…perfect musical judgement and a formidable technique from Martin Roscoe” Waldstein, DXL 1162, BBC Radio 3

“Coloured perhaps by a personal fondness for Op. 10, I think Roscoe’s way with them is nigh-on perfect” Pathetique, (DXL 1161) , Gramophone Magazine, June 2010

“These are thoroughly musical performances, with particularly fine accounts of the slow movements… a welcome addition.”
Pathetique (DXL 1161), BBC Music Magazine, July 2010
