Notes & Reviews:

On this an indispensable program for all lovers of romantic violin concertos, violinist Lorraine McAslan plays gorgeous violin concertos by Haydn Wood and Lionel Sainsbury. Reviewing Dutton Epoch's earlier recording of York Bowen's concerto, a critic wrote, "Lorraine McAslan's warm, patrician tone (which brings to mind that of Heifetz) and caressing manner is all one could ask." an assessment that critics will likely echo for this tuneful and involving coupling, rewarding discoveries both.

BBC Music Magazine
Lorraine McAslan soars aloft in both concertos, shading her ecstatic cantabile with portamentos reminiscent of Jascha Heifetz...The BBC Concert Orchestra provides devoted support and the recording is out of the top drawer.

Gramophone Magazine
[the Sainsbury concerto's] three movements, lasting 40 minutes, are hugely challenging for the soloist and McAslan meets them head on, whether soaring with lyrical passion in the upper reaches...or with glorious cello-like sonority on the G string. It's a terrific performance
