American Record Guide (11-12/97, pp.179-80) - "The `Sinfonia Concertante,' Rubbra's earliest published work, has one of the most haunting opening passages I've ever heard....Anyone interested in 20th Century music ought to buy this disc and listen to a unique, extremely interesting talent that may now be on the verge of higher recognition."
