Notes & Reviews:

Edward Gregson, a noted composer and conductor of contemporary music, retires from his post as Principal of the Royal Northern College of Music this year. This disc showcases three concertos, each of which uses a musical reference or homage as a backbone to the work. In the Saxophone Concerto the BBC Philharmonic and Clark Rundell are joined by Nobuya Sugawa, in the Trumpet Concerto by Ole Edvard Antonsen and in the Concerto for Piano and Wind by Nelson Goerner.

Gramophone Magazine
... the masterly Concerto for Piano an Wind used Stravinsky as a model without losing originality. The Trumpet Concerto is full of sparkle and energy too; but it too has an elegiac, haunting soliloquy for a slow movement. Perhaps most remarkable of all is the Saxophone Concerto, a dazzling cornucopia of ideas ad jazzy dance episodes. All three performances are outstanding... and this collection cannot be too highly recommended.
