“Composition of the ‘Edward’ Ballade may have afforded vicarious release for a personal inner turmoil that Brahms could never bring himself openly to confess.
— Brian Chapman

“Engaging performances”
— The Age (Melbourne)

“In his notes, he proposes some interesting psychological ideas concerning the Ballades and their relationship to Schumann’s failing health.”
Tony Way, The Age (Melbourne)
