Notes & Reviews:

Jamie Walton's latest venture with the Philharmonia Orchestra, led by Alexander Briger, covers two more contemporary Cello works; Shostakovich's Cello Concerto No. 2, and Britten's Symphony for Cello and Orchestra. Jamie Walton is quickly gaining international recognition for his work, being compared to Cello legends Rostropovich and Tortelier. The Elgar society wrote about Jamie's last disc: "I really cannot praise this performance too highly. For faithfulness to the text, interpretative musicality, accuracy, ensemble and warmth and beauty of tone, Walton cannot be beaten."
