Notes and Editorial Reviews

REVIEWS:
BBC Music (3/98, p.73) - Performance: 4 (out of 5), Sound: 4 (out of 5) - "...this is a passionately driven performance [of Walton's First Symphony], with the English Northern Philharmonia in fine form, and the symphony's almost unbroken level of high tension is splendedly sustained. The Partita...receives a finely judged performance..."
