Notes and Editorial Reviews

The soloists were well chosen, the harpist, Nancy Allen, providing the required delicacy and virtuosity in a stunning account of the Concierto serenata... [T]he cello concerto, Concierto en modo galante, is given a masterly reading by Robert Cohen. His playing moves effortlessly from the suave beauty to a spiky brilliance, with the LSO providing a beautifully detailed accompaniment.

-- David Denton, FANFARE [reviewing the Rodrigo Edition box set]
