Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
the First Symphony leaves the strongest impression here...It makes no mean impression in this performance, Martyn Brabbins drawing a committed response from the Royal Scottish National players, who are hardly less attentive in the concertos.

Sunday Times
The fine three-movement violin concerto is fiercely projected by Anthony Marwood; and the flute concerto, a modern piece of "programme music", tracking the myth of the title and inspired by Ted Hughes reading one of his Ovid translations, nicely exploits a quartet of solo instruments.

The Guardian
Both Sally Beamish's concertos here...have literary backgrounds, and her music seems to be at its most potent and vivid when it takes on a descriptive or extra-musical dimension. The three movements of the Violin Concerto relate directly to three passages in a most unlikely source...yet paradoxically the music does not rely on any knowledge of that source for its powerful effect.
