Notes & Reviews:

"The Violin Concerto, recorded here for the first time is refreshingly vital and lyrically captivating. Granted, Coleridge-Taylor doesn't have the sustained symphonic sweep and subtlety of Elgar's contemporaneous Violin Concerto, or of Dvorak's Concerto for that matter. But for most of the work it's the melodic impetus that carries the music. Philippe Graffin and the Johannesburg Philharmonic play it with refinement and plenty of feeling." ***** - Stephen Johnson, BBC Music Magazine
