Notes & Reviews:

This wide-ranging program of English music for strings includes the world premie`re recording of Howard Goodall's moving And the Bridge is Love, in which Julian Lloyd Webber plays cello, and of William Lloyd Webber's The Moon, only performed for the first time in 2014. There are also established classics such as Elgar's Introduction and Allegro, Op. 47, as well as novelties in the case of the never- before-recorded arrangements by Elgar's friend and biographer W.H. Reed of the two Chansons.

BBC Music Magazine, April 2015
As a conductor, he evidently has the ability to make a difference to collective performance-level (the English Chamber Orchestra plays characteristically and vividly at every point) while not getting in the music's way - a combination of qualities nicely suited to this line-up of string works.
