Notes & Reviews:

'It's good to see this fine recording reissued at mid price ... These concertos are attractive, tuneful and extremely accomplished' (Classic FM Magazine)

'I heard this CD on its first release and absolutely loved it. I was astonished that the violin concerto had reached such levels in classical England ... These are four challenging, tuneful pieces that deserve to be heard again and again' (Early Music Review)

'This disc proves as delightful as it is surprising ... a disc of rarities that will give much unexpected pleasure' (Early Music Review)

'Playing of touching beauty in the slow movements and infectious energy elsewhere, supported by a robust and fragrant orchestral accompaniment. Bravo to all concerned for another distinctive release in the [English Orpheus] series' (Gramophone)

'The performances transcend specialists' interest and the recording should therefore appeal to the broadest possible range of listeners. Highly recommended' (Fanfare, USA)
