Notes & Reviews:

"A glance at Graham Parlett's invaluable catalogue of Bax's music (OUP: 1999) reveals that the first of the composer's three numbered violin sonatas (a passionate outpouring from 1910 fanned by the embers of a love affair with a Ukrainian girl by the name of Natalie Skarginska) exists in no fewer than four versions. Bax's final revision dates from 1945 but this new Naxos collection includes a debut on disc for the original second and third movements that Bax jettisoned in 1915 when he overhauled the sonata for the first time The Potton Hall recording is absolutely first-rate to match and, as should be abundantly clear by now, this is a superlative issue; indeed, I'm already itching to hear what Jackson and Wass will make of the magnificently mean and moody Second Sonata." -Andrew Achenbach
