“…I’m grateful to Imogen Cooper for reminding me what treasures they [Op. 119 Bagatelles] have to offer, sometimes at moments towards the ends of pieces when you least expect them. It takes real artistry to apply such subtle variations of expressive pressure from phrase to phrase as Cooper delights in. Every detail here is patiently appreciated and gratefully addressed: neither self-regardingly spelt out nor diminishing pieces to the statues of a mere appetiser… Chandos’s recorded sound has a natural glow without ever compromising clarity…”

"... it's clear that Watkins and Drake have a rapport born of a long musical partnership. A bravura account of Gilbert Vinter's Hunter's Moon ends the disc with a flourish and leaves an unmistakable impression that these two distinguished players are certainly having a lot of fun."

"... these are athletic, upfront performances, clear in texture, forthright in tone and bold in articulation. Recorded at Wyastone, the sound is simultaneously perfectly lucid and slightly matt in overall finish. Personally, I find that ideal for chamber music ... A rewarding reminder that, in the 21st century, Shostakovich is no longer the preserve of any one performance tradition."
