Notes & Reviews:

Edward Gardner, an exclusive Chandos artist, conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra in two great William Walton works, his Violin Concerto and the Symphony No. 1. The symphony's first complete performance in 1935 was a triumph, immediately gaining the work an unwaveringly honored place in British music. Commissioned by Jascha Heifetz, the violin concerto soloist in this recording is Tasmin Little, one of the foremost interpreters of twentieth-century British music for the violin.
