Penguin Guide, January 2009

McDowell’s most famous piano piece opens this recital: To a Wild Rose (named by his wife) is the first of the 10 Woodland Sketches. They are all pleasant if not distinctive vignettes, most lasting a little over a minute. The other three suites are very similar. Not a CD to listen to all at once but to be dipped into; one can appreciate that Hames Baragallo is a thoroughly sympathetic exponent, and he is well recorded.
