2017-12-01 Gramophone,

Rose draws out every ounce of intimacy and grace, too. These are beautifully sensitive, expressive and musically shaped performances. There's often a wonderful aria-like quality to her slow movements; the C major Sonata's Arioso final movement truly is vocal in delivery, for instance. Then, with the more up-tempo, virtuoso moments, such as the lightning runs of the D major Sonata's central Allegro di molto, she brings a gentleness together with a strong sense of rhythm. Her tone itself is glorious too: rich and dark, with an exceptionally attractive grainy edge to it.
