Notes & Reviews:

'The original release of these concertos was long overdue and unanimously praised on both sides of the Atlantic. Its re-emergence at a moderate price is not only welcome but also deserving of high praise and an appropriate pedestal in our Classical Hall of Fame' (Fanfare, USA)

'A new entry in this year's top 300 ... full of ravishing pastoral scenes played beautifully by Thea King. You surely couldn't get a truer representation of these concertos which both deserve better recognition' (Classic FM Magazine, 'Best Buy')

'An inspired coupling. One of the year's best releases' (Classical Music)

'A superb reading. Such easy virtuosity enhances the happy, carefree atmosphere' (Gramophone)

'Thea King's shaping and colouring of Finzi's almost improvisatory melodic lines is more deeply persuasive than any other recorded version I know - touching without being sentimental' (BBC Music Magazine)

'A definitive performance' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)
