Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine, April 2016
This is an enticing package. You'd have to be a fairly diehard Anglophobe not to be attracted to a new anthology of Finzi's shorter orchestral works, performed by one of Britain's smartest young orchestras and conducted by Nicholas Collon... the Aurora Orchestra play this music with genuine freshness. Phrases are expressively moulded, inner parts nurtured and long lines beautifully sustained, with a lively attention to detail.

BBC Music Magazine, June 2016

BBC Music Magazine, June 2016
There are lissom performances of Finzi's pastoral miniatures Prelude, Romance and A Severn Rhapsody, and conductor Nicholas Collon shapes the Three Soliloquies from Love's Labour's Lost with winning pliancy.
