"Tanner is such a fine player"

INTERNATIONAL RECORD REVIEW, JUNE 2014

"Nicely rendered by the veteran bass-baritone Michael George,

with Tanner himself at the piano...an agreeable pinch of

harmonic spice...a charming invention"

INTERNATIONAL RECORD REVIEW, NOVEMBER 2014

"Tanner’s performances are magnificent. Most pianists would give

an arm and a leg, or at least a finger, to achieve his sumptuous sonority

and seamless legato…enviable breadth and poetic commitment”

ROY BARRACLOUGH, ACTOR, QUEEN VICTORIA, BALTIC CRUISE 2010

INTERNATIONAL PIANO MAGAZINE, JULIAN HAYLOCK, OCT/NOV 2009

“This new double album from the ever-enterprising and multi-talented

Mark Tanner is filled with surprises and riches…Thank goodness for

Mark Tanner’s eloquent and authoritative pianism. His musical intelligence

and sensibility shines through both discs to great persuasion, making

this a highly desirable and mainstream issue that deserves to be enjoyed

on a wide scale.”

PIANO PROFESSIONAL, ALEXANDER THOMPSON, 2009

"...bittersweet sophistication...brittle, fractured energy"

INTERNATIONAL RECORD REVIEW, MARTIN ANDERSON, OCTOBER 2009

“The playing by both the pianist and the flautist sounds excellent"

ALL MUSIC GUIDE, 2009

"Infectious exuberance and swagger”

INTERNATIONAL RECORD REVIEW, NICHOLAS SALWEY, MAY 2008

“Hard-edged delineation of texture...considerable variety and emotional depth...An appealing recital.”

RECORDS INTERNATIONAL, SEPTEMBER 2009

“The performances are extremely good, as is the recording...this CD is highly recommended for lovers of

20th century British music"

MUSICAL OPINION, ROBERT MATTHEW-WALKER, MAY 2007

"Mark Tanner is a hugely talented pianist...he]brings out the tissue-paper delicacy of this movement to perfection, while Neil Collier’s superbly balanced recording only adds to the enjoyment...he] not only delineates lines perfectly, he also is able to convey the piece’s structure convincingly. Impressive. Tanner plays with much delicacy where required, setting such passages alongside sparkling virtuosity..."

FANFARE, COLIN CLARKE, MARCH 2007

"This valuable release celebrates a significant, neglected British composer

of the mid-20th century"

RECORDS INTERNATIONAL, 2007

"This fine recording...lovingly played by Mark Tanner...quite a discovery,

as one indeed might say of the whole disc"

INTERNATIONAL RECORD REVIEW, IVAN MOODY, JANUARY 2007

"The acclaimed pianist is Mark Tanner, joined by Allan Schiller for the three duets.

These are subtle and diverting performances of music by a composer whose

style was patrician yet often passionate."
