Wordsworth – Holbrooke – Busch: British Music for Cello and Piano
The performances are quite outstandingly eloquent, the sound sumptuous and true … A super disc, this, and urgently recommended to all Anglophiles.
Andrew Achenbach, Gramophone – Recommended Recording, November 2010
Wholehearted and committed performances from Raphael Wallfisch and Raphael Terroni make the best of these neglected but often beautiful works which deserve to be better known. Their immaculately played readings present the perfect blend of technique and musicality, and they are well served by a warm, natural recorded sound.
Hubert Culot, MusicWeb
Heartfelt thanks once again to the BMS for another triumphant disc.
Nick Barnard, MusicWeb
If ever there was an advertisement for three composers who are largely ignored by listeners and the musical establishment alike, it is this CD. Busch,Wordsworth and Holbrooke are important composers who ought to be understood and enjoyed and appreciated as part of the British musical canon. This CD goes far in promoting this ambition.
John France, MusicWeb
… I urge this important new CD upon all those who are keen to explore the music of lesser-known composers … The performances, as I have suggested, are very good indeed. This is another success to add to the growing list of worthwhile BMS releases.
