'Violinist Darragh Morgan and pianist Mary Dullea go to work on this intriguing material with panache. The work is beautifully performed and spaciously recorded, Morgan's eloquent tone giving subtle nuances to the simplest of details, and the players shape Whitty's mix of fragmentary phrases and mechanistic gestures with the care of uncovering precious artefacts millimetre by millimetre. Glimmers of Franck's original surface in this delicately put together and intricate set of movements, but Morgan and Dullea capture the sorrow at its heart, of something always hiding beneath the surface, forever just out of reach.'
