In this intriguing and ambitious programme, Hopkins and Madzar offer a competent, if unremarkable account of Rachmaninoff’s great Sonata, but prove less accomplished in the Schnittke and Carter works. The recording offers lively and wide-ranging sonics which seem effectively balanced. Michael Jameson
