from Gramophone Magazine, June, 2018:

"He {Tarrant} minimises the first movement’s episodic tendencies by treating the big chordal passages as signposts, while sculpting contrapuntal sequences in forward-moving arcs. He also brings more pliability to the second-movement Andantino agitato’s counterpoint, although you strain to hear the pianissimos without turning up the volume beforehand. The Allegretto has a fetching lilt and attractive linear independence; indeed, the pedal staccatos occasionally sound as though they were plucked. Tarrant shapes the fourth movement from an eagle-eyed, big picture perspective, with the long melodies in the foreground and the undulating accompaniment unfolding in fluid paragraphs."
