Notes & Reviews:

Evidence of highly intelligent life beyond the standard repertoire. Warmly recommended to listeners of all types. - Fanfare

'if Anthony Marwood, Martyn Brabbins and the Scottish players learnt the works especially for this recording, then they've utterly fooled me. Totally at one with the idiom, Marwood's unflashy, sweet-toned playing lends just the right note of enchantment and authenticity to these forgotten scores. In short, this is Hyperion at its best' (Gramophone)

'Anthony Marwood is absolutely reliable in rhythm as well as pitching, though he still loosens up at appropriate moments; and Marwood's faster tempo for the slow movement, and more relaxed speeds for the finale, bring out more of their charm... Marwood is again the complete virtuoso in another assured and enjoyable performance' (BBC Music Magazine)

'For those who might prefer to hear reflections on the violin by a less frequently heard composer to discovering yet another violinist's attempt to comb out detail to personalize a war-horse recorded a hundred times over, Hyperion's series, and this installment in particular, should be especially welcome; for others, it could serve as evidence of highly intelligent life beyond the standard repertoire. Warmly recommended to listeners of all types' (Fanfare, USA)
