What the papers say...

"...poetry as well as virtuosity ... what makes his playing so complete is the combination of an innate musical simplicity with a highly developed technique..."
-- DAILY TELEGRAPH

"...the Rachmaninoff displayed Smith's total command of the piano. Possessed with exceptional hands, he elicited exquisitely legato phrasing and melodic lines that sang ... his finger dexterity was unbelievable..."
-- EAST AMERICAN PRESS

"...extraordinary technical ease and elegance ... tenderness, genius and poetry..."
-- MIAMI HERALD

"...great feeling for emotional nuance..."
-- UTRECHTS NIEUWSBLAD

"...displayed not only consummate virtuosity but also musicality of the highest level..."
-- THE TIMES

"...Glennie’s artistry on the wide range of percussion instruments was sparkling as was the piano work by Philip Smith who has been the regular pianist for Dame Evelyn for two decades..."
