Notes & Reviews:

Michael Davis began to play the violin under the guidance of his father Eric, a Hallé Orchestra principal. In 1967 he was invited by Sir John Barbirolli to become associate leader, and then co-leader, of the Hallé Orchestra. He was leader of the London Symphony Orchestra during the 1980s, and then leader of the BBC Symphony Orchestra during the 1990s. Rayson Whalley, a member of the Hallé Orchestra since 1948, enjoyed most of the Barbirolli era as pianist and percussionist. In addition to activities with the orchestra, he has shown himself to be equally at home with chamber music, as in his partnership with Michael Davis on this CD.
