‘…seizing the music with amazing decisiveness… I would never have imagined a mere piano could have captured that world, but Richard Uttley’s tumultuous performance soon persuaded me.’

Ivan Hewett : The Daily Telegraph

‘Some of the day’s most arresting moments came in a recital by Richard Uttley. I was enthralled by his composure, lyricism and ability to hold a moment without forcing it.’

Kate Molleson : The Guardian

‘… Richard Uttley’s rapt performance …’

Andrew Clements : The Guardian

‘Two of the most inspired concerts came from young British pianist Richard Uttley’

Kate Makin : Vancouver Classical Music

‘… evangelical enthusiasm … assiduous clarity … lyrical poise … a brilliant recital.’

Neil Fisher : The Times

‘…excellently devised and executed…’

Paul Driver : The Sunday Times

‘I wouldn’t use this term of many pianists but, both from a purely aural perspective as well as watching him perform, Uttley comes across like a ballet dancer. His movements are graceful, lyrical, acrobatic; keys are sprung from, landed upon, tickled, urged, encouraged, coaxed—but rarely, it seems to me, merely struck.’

Simon Cummings : 5:4

‘… musical intelligence and pristine facility interlock seamlessly … compendious capacity for touch control … extremely refined, well considered and emotionally selfless … a pianist with something to say.’
Mark Tanner : International Record Review

‘breathtaking sensitivity’
Paul Kilbey : Bachtrack

‘… contemporary piano music has some fine young interpreters right now; Richard Uttley’s is a name to add to the distinguished litany.’
Paul Riley : BBC Music Magazine

‘intense and sensitive performance … a gifted and thoughtful Mozartean’

Louise Schweitzer : The Argus

‘Richard Uttley’s performance was as assured as the piano writing itself.’

Mark Berry : Seen and Heard International : Oliver Knussen Total Immersion Day

‘… a fascinating disc with which I cannot find fault, and it represents an impressive and auspicious debut for Richard Uttley. I hope it receives the widespread critical acclaim that it clearly deserves.’

Nicholas Salwey : International Record Review
