"The set is required listening for all Cyril Scott fans; the performances are impressive."
The Delian, October 2006
"You may, without fear, invite De'Ath into your house and feel confident in performances that get to the heart of the music. For the many who yet to dip their toes into Scott's heady mixture, start with the first volume (CDLX 7150) and savor several tracks played by the composer himself. The intelligent notes are by the pianist, and Dutton's sound leaves nothing to be desired."
Alan Becker, American Record Guide, March/April 2007
"Revival for the man Sir Eugene Goossens said was father of modern British music'."
"The revival of Cyril Scott's large output of piano music continues with two more fine CDs thanks to the inspired dedication of Canadian pianist Leslie De'Ath."
"Good recording and presentation again: nobody could do better for Scott."
Peter Dickinson, Gramophone, October 2006
