Cyril Scott Sonata Lirica.png

Gramophone - Editor's Choice

"wonderful playing"

"superb chamber recital" 

"The whole collection is a most attractive expression of Scott's highly characteristic style, all wonderfully played. Clare Howick and Sophia Rahman are both superb" 

International Record Review

"Sonata Lirica is a major find. In this world premiere performance, the composer is honoured by playing of some distinction: Clare Howick's consistency of tone and highly musical phrasing, make the best possible case for this work. There are other ostensibly lighter works here, all similarly well played ..." "Let us hope it [Scott's music] takes its rightful place in programmes, in which case this excellent disc will have played a valuable part in such restitution." 

Musician Magazine

"Violinist Clare Howick and pianist Sophie Rahman explore the work of the groundbreaking British composer Cyril Scott, resulting in a sublime album of intensity and imagination that can only add to the duo’s growing reputation… Splendid throughout."
