Notes and Editorial Reviews

'Magical playing ... the music is irresistibly melodious, inventive and dazzlingly virtuosic. Donohoe throws off the technical pyrotechnics with insouciance. A fine recording only enhances the joys of this entertaining music and Donohoe's exhilarating performance' (The Sunday Times) 'Recording and presentation are first class' (Gramophone) 'Donohoe and Litton rise to the occasion magnificently with panache and poetry in equal measure ... for the fourteenth tme in this historically important series of recordings we can raise our hats and say 'Thank you, Hyperion' (Classic CD) 'Peter Donohoe assume parfaitement les défis de ces pages flamboyantes, dans lesquelles l'Orchestre de Bournemouth fait preuve de tout l'éclat approprié' (Diapason, Read more France) 'This entertaining Hyperion CD is one of the year's surprises and very much worth having' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs) Read less
