Penguin Guide, January 2009

Benjamin Frith offers a highly imaginative set of the Op. 35 Preludes and Fugues, full of diversity, from the flamboyant opening Prelude in E minor to the expansive Prelude No. 6 in B flat. The three Caprices are equally varied in mood and colour and are most sensitively presented. The Perpetuum mobile makes a scintillating score. Acceptably full if not remarkable piano-sound.

American Record Guide, December 1995

A most solid release by a player of distinct gift and musicality... his performances are entertaining and colorful. All in all, this is tasteful, skilled piano playing at a very high level, and I was pleased to make Frith's artistic acquaintance. Good sound.

BBC Music Magazine

"Frith is supremely sensitive to the varying demands, balancing melodies with accompaniments, bringing out important subsidiary ideas and moulding each piece in to a perfect vignette"
