Reviews:

 ....the music pleases in a very unthreatening, beguiling way, especially in "An African Shrine"...

Houston Chronicle

...a new facet of the composer is exposed...the underlying poetry of the music is...serious rather than flippant...both angles splendidly brought out by Roscoe in performances of total authority...well recorded... 

Gramophone

...a fascinating amalgam...from the bouncy "The Road to Samarkand" to the almost mystic "Intercom Baby", the music (and the explanatory notes) are superb. 

Raymond Jones, Classical Remarks 

...impressive resource and invention in both musical and pianistic terms...Martin Roscoe responds to the unfailingly effective keyboard textures with much superb playing...one cannot imagine better performances, nor ones better recorded...

Hi Fi News 

...this is a delightful recording...Lloyd's piano music has the same qualities we find in his symphonies: good tunes, genuine wit, and a romantic flair...Intercom Baby is a lullaby with a lovely tune that won't leave your head after you hear it...An African Shrine is the major work here...descriptive of the tension, the violence, and the beauties that combine to make up Africa...

Henry Fogel, Fanfare

...five pieces...in a romantic idiom...sonorous, rich and sometimes gritty...An African Shrine (is) a compelling 23 minute tone drama...this is big stuff, wonderfully played by Martin Roscoe...
