“This is a magical listening experience. [Ms Boyle] does not attempt to deprive Gould of his speed record (neither did Gould himself make an assault on it when he re-recorded the work in 1981) but brings something quite different though equally exciting to the set. Her sound world is a different one from Gould's: richer, warmer, more nuanced and full of emotional as well as intellectual depth and resonance. Hats off to Diana Boyle.” – Anthony MacDonald (Amazon)
