'Martyn's sympathetic and interesting biography; with its excellent descriptions of Medtner's music, is well worth exploring.' Robin Zebaida, Classical Music 'All enthusiasts will want a copy and all libraries should have one.' Musical Times 'Martyn always has some useful insights to offer; above all, because he is devoted to Medtner's music, knows it intimately and can write about it with an enthusiasm that is both infectious and sensitive, his attractively written book should help foster a climate favourable to the production of a truly definitive study of Medtner. Meanwhile, for the foreseeable future it will do its subject's cause excellent service.' Music and Letters '... a comprehensive monograph that helps to restore Medtner's name to the pages of music history.' Clavier Magazine
