Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Anglo-German composer Sherwood (b.1866) has slipped through the cracks of history - his impressive output of orchestral, chamber, choral and instrumental music is only now beginning to be discovered. Once an important figure in his native Dresden, in WWI he faded from view and by the time of his death in London (1939) his music was as good as forgotten.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
Well, Toccata is starting a Sherwood collection, and the liner notes give us much detail complete with some fine illustrations and footnotes. This program of his cello music reveals a romantic composer of verve and originality, lively to listen to. Spooner and Norris play him with passion and accuracy. There are two fine sonatas from 1891 and 1900 and three pieces, Op. 14 of considerable originality. This is a composer worth following up, certainly when played as well as he is here.
