Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, March 2015
Mostly mid-century works, dominated by introspection and anguish. Full-blooded accounts, especially useful in the braggadocio of Holbrooke's Fantasie-Sonate.

This survey of British cello music focuses on three composers whose critical fortunes have never quite matched their undoubted musical gifts. William Wordsworth always displayed independence of mind and considerable melodic invention, and his cello works reflect a kinship with the music of Bartok and, later, Shostakovich. The short-lived William Busch is represented by his Suite, both a passionate oration and a brilliant dance. Much earlier in the twentieth century the prolific Josef Holbrooke composed a Fantasie-Sonata that is irresistibly lively and virtuosic.
