Notes & Reviews:

David Matthews' previously unrecorded symphonies crown a wonderful catalogue of orchestral music that is widely recognized. The first volume of Dutton Matthews symphony cycle is powerfully presented by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales conducted by Martyn Brabbins. The orchestra responds strongly to Brabbins' eloquent readings of music that is at once brilliant and powerfully expressive.

BBC Music Magazine
In all three works the performances are strikingly authoritative and warmly persuasive...

Gramophone Magazine
David Matthews's six symphonies... are fine examples of modern British symphonism, true to the heritage of finely crafted, economical, non-gimmicky structures bound together with a strong lyrical threads, yet not offering easy access via programmatic reference, declared or otherwise.
