Notes and Editorial Reviews

“crisp, clear-sighted approach, all proceeds at a proper tempo and, where appropriate, with a spring in its heels. The slow movements are sensitively expressive…. this is basically how such works would have been heard in their time, you may feel this is the way it should be…. The strings are ‘authentic’ and respectful of every element ….I thoroughly enjoyed this and the superb recording” “Ivor Bolton is close enough to be heard in realistic balance, (his) clean and incisive fingers bring the music to life in these most enjoyable recordings.” (Gramophone)
