‘I first heard the Music of Hermeto more than 25 years ago and fell in love with it instantly. It has continued to fascinate and entrance me ever since, and a small part of the spirit of Hermeto has permeated all my work to date. I hope that this recording is a celebration, tribute and a musical “thank you” for all this and more.’ (Huw Warren)

“David Six’ solo piano – In The Rosewood Forrest is a release that has drawn large audiences. The release clearly brings Six to the foreground not only as a pianist but also as a composer. Recommended!” ( Musik an sich )
“The depth that David Six explores and uncovers in his piano music is highly impressive. Sitting across from comments of virtuosity, design and background, the source of ‘real’ music is conveyed.” (Christoph Cech)
