Notes & Reviews:

"...The British bassist Chi-Chi Nwanoku negotiates their [Vanhal's and Dittersdorf's concertos] suprising flights of vituosity with considerable panache--even adding to the difficulties in one alternative cadenza of her own--and makes the most of their equally surprising singing melodies...[Taken] one D major concerto at a time, this is a most enjoyable disc." **** -Burton, BBC

'A most enjoyable disc' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Nwanoku's playing is both athletic and eloquent in these appealing bass concertos. [She] plays her solo music with due vivacity and skill... as graceful as can be imagined on her instrument. Paul Goodwin's neat and sympathetic accompaniments, his leisurely pacing and his judicious balancemake this disc even more appealing' (Gramophone)

'An elegant performance. Beautifully played and phrased by Nwanoku, who reveals the lyrical potential of the solo bass' (The Strad)

'Chi-chi Nwanoku is a delightful soloist. [Her] light-as-air sound and technical clarity are a continual source of pleasure' (International Record Review)

'An ideal coupling, very well recorded' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'A treat' (Amazon.co.uk)
