…. Inglis’s tendency towards the idea of quick-change montage is here … and in the opening movement upper trills and then the cavernous rumblings of lower trills play an important role in the music. Remember of course that this is an ‘homage’ and not an imitation [of Alkan]. The music is very modern and very much the composer’s own. It would certainly be of interest for aspiring young pianists hoping to expand their abilities. (Alan Cooper, British Music E-News, February 2019)
