Notes & Reviews:

This latest album - his fifth with Telarc and second with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra - is the follow up to his previous chart-topping album, which won Gramophone's Editor's Choice Award. The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra also presents selections from Mávlast, Bedrich Smetana's patriotic musical ode to his home country, Czechoslovakia.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
Bailey is a fine cellist and one of the most active players around today. He has played everything everywhere, and this performance of the great Elgar concerto is a fine one, full of intensity on both the positive and gloomy sides of its spectrum. In other words, it is up there with the best. Urbanski and the orchestra join him with sensitivity and a good balance of voices. The program, then, is most desirable for the Elgar concerto. The Smetana is good. I wish him the best.
