Notes and Editorial Reviews

David Campbell gives us smoothness and expressivity in full measure while providing lively playing for the many high-spirited passages that call for it.

My favourite version of the Flute and Harp Concerto is certainly this latest one from Richard Hickox... The players are both young but are nevertheless highly skilled and mature musicians, and it is the best balanced recording, the harp having adequate presence... The Clarinet Concerto is, no doubt, the greater work by a good deal. It benefits from smooth and most expressive playing and here I again prefer the Pickwick disc with David Campbell, who gives us those qualities in full measure while providing lively playing for the many high-spirited passages that call for
Read more it. I must add, however, that he does nothing to decorate those bars with pause marks in the solo part, where other players insert a tasteful note or two, which is obviously correct. Still, Campbell always plays those passages with great expression, as he does everything else.
