"From the point of view of rounded, fully achieved performance the duet of violinist Diana Galvydyte and pianist Christopher Guild were the highlight of the series’ first two days. Anthony Payne’s beautifully crafted duet pieces could seem dry, but these performers revealed their coiled energy and flashes of melodic grace."
Ivan Hewett, The Daily Telegraph, January 2012
"This [Beethoven's Fantasie, Op.77] is a strange work and few pianists have specialised in it... Guild turned in a riveting performance."
"The second half began with a wonderful account of Haydn’s B minor Sonata from Christopher Guild. His tempo for the finale seemed, initially, so fast as to make us wonder if it could be maintained – but it was, brilliantly and meaningfully..."
"Alert to the musical and emotional cross-currents in the music, Guild offers a sensitive reading of these interesting and varied works that is insightful, colourful, brimming with rhythmic vitality, and meticulously presented on this high-quality recording"
"Christopher Guild brings warmth, intimacy and wistfulness to the pieces based on Scottish folk tunes with his assured lightness of touch, sensitive voicing, clean articulation, rhythmic vitality and a keen sense of the fleeting moods and characters of each piece"
"Whether in works by virtuoso pianists CPE Bach, Beethoven, Liszt, Chopin, or in a well known work by Debussy or in a little known work by Respighi, he gripped the audience’s attention with his dramatic and intensely felt renditions. [...] Christopher Guild’s performance showed both technical brilliance and a sense of the tensions, the despair and the moments of rest in the piece."
