Notes & Reviews:

"Britten's suites for solo cello are his response to Rostropovich's performance of JS Bach's...The innocuously named Tim Hugh does not just play these works, he attacks them, winning triumphantly. His tight, intense tone is in full accord with his aggressive playing style, full of fury and ferocity...Rostropovich's performances are available on a London CD, but Hugh's are worthy to stand proudly alongside, and at a lesser price too!" -Parsons, ARG
