"An irresistable discovery, winningly championed by a new orchestra" Editor's Choice Gramophone July 2004

Editor's Choice Gramophone Magazine July 2004

"A rarely heard concerto, only now receiving its recorded première, nearly vanished for good when the orchestral parts went down with the Titanic, but the composer was able to organise a replacement set ready for the première in June 1912 in New England. It is a delightful work and the coupling, Dvoák's concerto, couldn't be more appropriate."
(Gramophone)

"Make no mistake the Coleridge-Taylor is a vivacious and captivating work which I guarantee that you will come to love. It is aptly harnessed with the Dvořák and if you know the Dvořák work and love it then you will have a good feeling for what to expect from the Coleridge-Taylor without it being in any way a carbon copy."
