Reviews

A fascinating journey through Peter Dickinson’s output for solo organ. [Complete Solo Organ Works on Naxos 8 572169] The Dickinson journey is traced here in supremely well-articulated and strongly characterised performances by Jennifer Bate…The disc is a fine birthday tribute to a composer who has escaped the confines of the predictable without ever ceasing to communicate.

Peter Dickinson couldn’t have hoped for a more articulate or persuasive advocate of his solo organ work than Jennifer Bate. The two have enjoyed a long and mutually rewarding relationship in the concert hall, and here Bate interrogates Dickinson’s idiomatically expressive voice – “far from the English choral tradition”- with virtuosic ease to enjoyable effect. Bate finds contrast aplenty in the deliciously ragtime-infused Blue Rose Variations, the hushed serialist-leaning Study in Pianissimo and the compelling concentrated intensity of Paraphrase I. A dozen other works showcase Dickinson’s thoughtful, characterful and multifaceted approach to the organ.
Michael Quinn, Choir & Organ, 9/1/2009

...especially welcome as a telling cross-section of the composer's distinctive voice, his exuberant originality and willingness to challange convention.
Malcolm Miller, Tempo, 1/1/2010

The various recordings and venues have been excellently combined to produce a record of cont¬emporary British organ music of no little distinction and importance. A most strongly recommended issue of music by one of the most gifted of all British compos¬ers.
James Palmer, The Organ, 1/1/2012
