Notes & Reviews:

Jamie Walton is joined by the Philharmonia Orchestra under the baton of their conductor laureate Vladimir Ashkenazy for this new concerto recording of concertos and orchestral works by Dvor?ak and Schumann. Jamie Walton has proved himself as a leading light in the UK's musical life; as a performer in his widely praised concerto and sonata recordings and as a festival director in his work as founder of the North York Moors Festival, which was shortlisted for an RPS Award in 2011.

The Telegraph, 8th March 2013
The two concertos on either side of this lovely miniature, ably supported by the Philharmonia, confirm Walton as an artist with secure intuition in terms of style and with a manner of performing that speaks with natural fluency, eloquence and strength of purpose.

The Strad, May 2013
Jamie Walton's individual phrases are eloquently lyrical and the technical components are accomplished.

Gramophone Magazine, June 2013
Walton's latest anthology for Signum once again shows him to be an impressive performer in terms of technical acumen, stylish refinement and burnished tone. The Philharmonia, too respond with beguiling poise...[the Schumann] winningly combines strength of personality, expressive reach and big-hearted sincerity.

BBC Music Magazine, September 2013
Walton's avoidance of excessive vibrato and his generally straightforward approach to phrasing has an appealing freshness. Vladimir Ashkenazy and the Philharmonia are very discreet accompanists, but the rather cloudy recording does few favours for Schumann's orchestration.

MusicWeb International, July 2014
[Walton] is a firm-bowed cellist with a dusky, resonant sound on the lower strings, a clear tone in the upper reaches and a reliable sense of style...The soloist's straightforward, no-nonsense musicality is an asset in the Schumann concerto, particularly in the first movement...The conducting is a pleasant surprise.
