Notes and Editorial Reviews

[The First Concerto] needs to be played with a real sense of fun,...and Michael Roll deliver[s] the goods... Roll’s performance of No. 1 is, indeed, hugely enjoyable throughout, and the same warmth and effortless musicality inform his account of the Emperor. Anyone wanting an inexpensive version of these works would be hard put to do better than this very impressive disc.
