Notes and Editorial Reviews

Boyd's playing is dynamic, with tempos that are slightly more extreme than [Heinz] Holliger's (faster in the outside movements, slower in the middle movements), stylishly phrased and ornamented... The orchestral accompaniment, directed by the soloist, is appealing and apt, and the recording is first-rate.

-- George Chien, FANFARE [9/1990]
