"Ashford shows in turns a songlike cantabile and a riveting light touch." The Observer

"His interpretation of Mozart's Piano Sonata highlighted his skill at playing to the distinct strengths of his instrument to remake the music in its own image." The Scotsman

"… on several occasions (he) transcended the mere excellent to something on a far higher plain’
