Notes & Reviews:

British music for the cello flourished in the first decades of the Twentieth century and created a fertile seed bed for the gifted generations of composers to come. The four composers heard on this recording never achieved widespread fame, owing to early death or a reluctance to promote their music, but their contribution to the repertoire is substantial and very personal. Two of the works - by Busch and Leighton - were composed for the well-known cellist Florence Hooton. The program is played by one of the most admired duos of recent times, Raphael Wallfisch and Raphael Terroni.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
This outstanding program comprises four very fine cello and piano works by four distinguished modern-but-essentially-traditional British composers in excellent performances and very good sound, all of them reissued from British Music Society CDs.
