CD Reviews

International Piano

“Here is a strikingly original voice. [Earl’s music] is bursting with passion, its rhythms energising, its melodies soaring and searing… this disc will blow you away” – Joe Laredo (International Piano)

Voted joint runner-up in International Piano magazine's “Best New Piano Music Recording” 2007 awards.

Music Web

“The ambitious Cello Sonata… is a moving work and this performance is movingly done. The Third Suite is music that shimmers and flames. The composer is a fine advocate of his own music” - Rob Barnett (MusicWeb) Read the full review

Gramophone

“For those who like their contemporary music tonal, substantial and individual, I suggest you investigate. David Earl is certainly a name to add to your list” - Jeremy Nicholas (Gramophone)

Musical Opinion

“I am astonished that music this good should be so little known... these two large-scale works betoken a genuine composer of considerable talent. I find the music compelling and fascinating. The recordings are excellent and this CD is strongly recommended” – Robert Matthew-Walker (Musical Opinion)
