Notes & Reviews:

After the runaway success of the first release of Tovey's 'Symphony in D' (TOC 33), this second CD brings three more works - one a premiere, another a first recording since 1937. Tovey's 'Cello Concerto,' Op. 40 - almost an hour in length - was written for his friend Pablo Casals; it is joined here by the delightful 'Air for String Orchestra,' and the noble 'Elegiac Variations' for cello and piano. Cellist Alice Neary was the winner of the 1998 Pierre Fournier Award, and was awarded major prizes in the 2001 Leonard Rose International Cello Competition. "[Neary is] a player of the highest calibre ... a player of rare gifts." -The London Times
