Notes & Reviews:

In this re-release Richard Hickox conducts works for strings by Herbert Howells. Performed by the orchestra he founded in 1971, City of London Sinfonia, the music represents just a small part of the often neglected British repertoire to which Hickox showed such extraordinary dedication.

Sunday Times, 8th September 2013
[Noseda's] Russian immersion lends dividends...to Ehnes's sizzling accounts of the two popular concertos...Just as compelling are the chamber works...Ehnes and his pianist give performances worthy of the giants (Oistrakh and Richter) for whom their parts were conceived.
