‘A mammoth undertaking is displayed by Penelope Roskell …she goes deeply and intelligently way beyond any point reached before, carefully considering the practicalities and alternatives, laying ground rules, giving copious examples from the great pianists.  I like the presentation, the premise and the price.’ Classical Piano
