"The young Cornish pianist Daniel Hill accompanies Elizabeth in Brahms's Second Sonata, a rich and thoughtful performance, while Wieniawski's fantasy on 'Faust' demonstrates her remarkable virtuosity. Robert Schumann's first Sonata and Romance by Clara Schumann complete this fine disc."
Ian Fox, Sunday Tribune 27 March 2005
"It was an outstanding reading which realised
all the alternating drama and lyricism of the piece.
She is a talent to watch."
Tully Potter, The Strad
