Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Croshaw is a first-rate artist, as her musical characterisation fully demonstrates, and is perfectly balanced in the First Cello Sonata with her partner Christina Shillito, who favours a comparatively restrained lyricism...Excellent recording throughout ensures that altogether this is a morerewarding duet-recital." - Gramophone "Croshaw is a first-rate artist, as her musical characterisation fully demonstrates, and is perfectly balanced in the First Cello Sonata with her partner Christina Shillito, who favours a comparatively restrained lyricism...Excellent recording throughout ensures that altogether this is a morerewarding duet-recital." - Gramophone Read less
