Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Hickox and Accardo take their time most satisfyingly in the dreamy ostinato in the middle movement making the zest and flitter of the presto sections all the more effective. In the finale seductive tenderness meets rapturous grandeur (Violin Concerto)...the richly upholstered depth and breadth of the orchestral image is bound to please..." (Symphony No. 1)
