JULY 30, 2017, CUT COMMON MAGAZINE

‘… Reverie I, II and III, three works interspersed in the program, were outstanding examples of the great compositional balance of virtuosity, simplicity, fragility and drama that Griffiths achieves in Introspection. This is not an easy task for solo piano music…’

NOVEMBER 5, 2016, NEWS WEEKLY

‘The music ebbs and flows, rising to pitches of excitement, then lapsing back into melancholy. That is scarcely an unusual expressive combination, but it is achieved with great skill… This is a fine first recording by Griffiths. He has established himself as an accomplished composer and his introspections justify close listening.’
