A selection of reviews

Euan Ferguson’s review of Chord of the Week in the Observer, September 2nd 2018:

Owen Norris surpassed even himself by likening a Rachmaninov chord to a painter’s faint lines of perspective, scrubbed afterwards: it made sense, even to me, at the time, and garnered a round of awed applause from Katie Derham and guests. Probably the most consistently intelligent three minutes you’ll watch on this or any other television this year.
