Description


“Tirimo is a fine pianist with first-rate technical command, and understands Debussy’s world well.” (© Gramophone) “probably first choice for those wanting a modern digital recording offering the complete set…recording most realistic and natural” (© Penguin Guide) [Fauré] “A most enjoyable recital, and one for which listeners will be grateful … What is Impressive is the pianist’s integration of fragility and firmness, simplicity and complexity ” (Gramophone) [Ravel]: “I’m glad to be able to praise a fluid but unhurried Jeux d’eau that is well served, too, by the velvety-rich recorded sound … it ‘s attractive. So are the Sonatine, and the tenderly solemn Pavane pour une infante défunte” (Gramophone) [Satie] “Dickinson made Satie’s music a centrepoint of his repertoire, and his thoughtful approach to this highly rewarding music is all his own … variety of articulation and colour is fully at the service of the composer.” (Penguin Guide)
