Notes and Editorial Reviews

A premiere recording of Christopher Ball's Horn Concerto and his Oboe Concerto, featuring soloists Tim Thorpe and Paul Arden-Taylor respectively. Also included are several other works by Ball for flute (Burgess) and accompaniment. Ball's aim is to compose music which will communicate with and appeal to as wide an audience as possible, eschewing atonal or avant-garde style, which makes these works highly listenable and enjoyable to all audiences.

"A horn concerto as Vaughan Williams would have written one, the most attractive of Ball's concertos." -- MusicalMerit

(re: Ball's Violin Concerto) "The most lyrical since Elgar's." -- Fanfare
