Pike finds much to relish in [the three
sonatas], not only in her beautiful singing tone, but also in
moments of hushed mystery… Debussy’s multiple gear-changes,
Ravel’s jazz-inflected musings and Franck’s intense emotions are
negotiated with ease. She experiments beguilingly with varied
tone colours…indeed there are numerous places where Pike has
inspiring timbral ideas… These engaging performances of all
three works bode well for the next steps in Pike’s career.”
