It has taken a while for Watkins, one of Britain’s most individual and gifted composers, to get a CD to himself, and NMC has done him proud. His keen ear for instrumental timbre is matched by a response to texts that makes for riveting listening, and the finesse and panache of his pianism is every bit the equal of his distinguished colleagues. Urgently recommended, even if it makes one even more impatient for a disc of Watkins’ orchestral works.
