This volume is a revelation of how his earlier works, over a period of some ten years dating from the age of 15, show similar stylistic idioms as the later works which are so familiar...With its uniquely original style, this book deserves to be widely used by music students at all levels not just as a memento of a leading British composer but as a valuable source of items worthy of concert performance.

Piano Journal

...these historical jewels give a taste of the composer's first creative steps. A little gem.
