British Works for Cello and Piano, Vol. 2 - works by York Bowen, Arnold Bax and John Ireland / Paul Watkins, cello; Huw Watkins, piano

Notes & Reviews:

Paul Watkins, an exclusive Chandos artist, returns to his series of British works for cello and piano, playing sonatas by York Bowen, John Ireland and Sir Arnold Bax. He is accompanied by his brother, Huw Watkins. International Record Review wrote of volume one, 'This is a marvelous release: for the intriguing music, the superb performances and the first-class sound.'

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
The music of these three composers is powerfully emotional and basically romantic in character. The warmth of both Watkins's tone and the way they work together is a strong recommendation. The Chandos sound is rich.

BBC Music Magazine, Christmas Issue 2013
Bathed in Chandos splendour, the Watkins brothers remain by far the best recorded guides to this powerful and enjoyable repertoire.

MusicWeb International, 27th November 2013
Three cello and piano masterpieces on one disc takes a lot beating ... and I do not use the word 'masterpiece' lightly...Paul and Huw Watkins give hugely impressive and ultimately sympathetic performances of all three works.

Gramophone Magazine, December 2013
Paul Watkins and Huw Watkins have all this music in their very being and play here, as always, with great spontaneity. The Chandos recording is entirely truthful.
