The disc has already received high praise from Gramophone Magazine:

“It’s a triumph… Once again, one has to salute the extraordinary facility & irresistibly seductive, lyrical grace of Collins’s playing, surely one of his instrument’s greatest living exponents.”

The album is also Classic FM’s ‘Disc of the Week’ this week (w/c 3 Feb 2020).
