 Enjoyable and Well Done August 16, 2014 By Wil L W. (Richwood, TX) See All My Reviews "My initial interest in Leighton's works began with his solo organ works. I wanted to hear his cello concerto. The ArkivMusic-recommended Chandos CD paired the concerto with one of his symphonies featuring a tenor which I didn't care for from the sound samples. This particular Chandos CD features the same concerto recording plus Finzi's cello concerto with which I was not familiar. I enjoyed both works. The sound and performances are both very good. I'm very pleased with this selection. Recommended." Report Abuse
