Sophie Rosa and Benjamin Powell present a beautiful selection of works by Franck, Ravel and Ysäye for their debut album on the Champs Hill Label.

The young British prodigy Sophie Rosa, ably supported by pianist Benjamin Powell, interprets this repertoire with authority and yet the overwhelming impression is one of adventurous disposition mingled with a depth of emotion that conveys real exuberance. A wonderfully attractive recital, excellently recorded and presented.” -Gerald Fenech, Music and Vision Magazine

This is a very fine disc, containing uniformly excellent performances in great style and played with complete musical understanding… a very desirable record indeed …” – Robert Matthew-Walker Musical Opinion Quarterly July-September 2016

…silken, silvery tone Sophie Rosa plays the first movement with an insinuating sensuality that captures the seductive mood to perfection.

…Never have I heard a diminuendo and the fade-out like Rosa achieves at the end of the movement; it absolutely took my breath away.

This may just be the best recording yet from this label and venue.” – Jerry Dubins, Fanfare Magazine July/August 2016
