Notes & Reviews:

Susan Gritton's solo recital with the BBC Concert Orchestra and Martyn Brabbins is focused on orchestral songs by Elgar and John Ireland. This enchanting and pioneering survey marks the first time so substantial a survey of Elgar's orchestral songs has been presented in one program. The nine John Ireland songs include the title piece 'Her Song' from 1925, which makes a touching lyrical foil to Elgar's exuberance.

Gramophone Magazine
... performances are all one could hope for. Susan Gritton brings resplendent tone and intelligent observation to the task in hand, and she receives bright-eyed sensitive support from the BBC Concert Orchestra under Martyn Brabbins.

BBC Music Magazine
Throughout Gritton is musically purposeful... while Martyn Brabbins and the BBC players do a fine job.
