Notes & Reviews:

Ashton (b. 1859, Durham), is a best-kept secret of British music. He has a generous output of piano music, chamber works and songs. Ashton's writing for both cello and piano is virtuosic. What strikes the ear is the quality of his melodic inspiration - the lyrical immediacy of his tunes suggests Schubert, set in a style of Brahmsian richness. This CD features world premiere recordings.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
Judging by this collection of his cello music, they are well worth exploring. He was a man with a sense of humor and a clever mind. These pieces are imaginative, with original touches in his treatment of the formal structure.
