GramophoneThe playing here, disarmingly gentle yet tonally seductive, has a songful use of vibrato that recalls the expressive manners of Pierre Fournier and du Pré herself…A most rewarding CD then, sure evidence that we should henceforth be on the lookout for any performances, recorded or live, that involve Sheku Kanneh-Mason.”

The Times The images shout urban cool, although there’s nothing cool or gritty about the sounds produced from his Amati cello of 1610. They’re always heartfelt, often as yielding as softened butter, and they shine out of every track…even at the start of his career, nothing masks the authority or technical finesse of his playing…Above all, Kanneh-Mason’s playing radiates love of life, commitment and hope.”
