Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Violinist Thomas Gould (b. 1983), leader of the Aurora Orchestra and associate leader of the Britten Sinfonia, has established himself as one of Britain's leading solo violinists. He is as equally at ease playing Bach and Beethoven as he is playing jazz or performing works by the rising young composers featured herein. Mr. Gould joined the swing band Man Overboard in 2011 (their first album All Hands on Deck was a 2013 Champs Hill release). Leading off the album is Bach's Chaconne in D minor, a pinnacle of the violinist's repertoire; jazz legend Charlie Parker's 'Donna Lee' concludes matters.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
All right! Enough joking! One reason that this program is listenable is because of its organization. It begins with the great Bach Chaconne from Partita 2, played with taste and accuracy. At 15 minutes it is by far the longest work. The rest were written in the 21st Century in the main. Everything on this program is worth hearing and it is unified by Gould's sensitive style of playing. The recorded sound is clear and smooth.
