"...the last work on the program, a Prelude to The Naiades, originally part of his [Standford’s] Second Symphony. This is another quiet but colorful piece that moves along rapidly and makes an effective closing to a lovely program. Wallfisch and Lloyd-Jones and the orchestra play this music with joy, and the recording is clear and warm."
D Moore - American Record Guide - November/December 2012
"... Not only are the performances under David Lloyd-Jones’s clear-headed direction consistently tidy and persausive, the disc also benefits from really excellent production values. Do investigate some rewarding repertoire - and fingers crossed for more."
Andrew Achenbach - MusicWeb-International.com - 29 October 2012
"Tight, tensile rhythms, sharply sculpted orchstration, and a genuine individuality - Patric Standford’s music merits close inspection. Impressively punchy performances." ****
Terry Blain - BBC Music magazine - November 2012
"... well worth investigating... Standford’s music has been extremely well served by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and that doughty champion of unfamiliar British music, David Lloyd-Jones. The sound quality is extremely good."
John Quinn - MusicWeb-International.com
"...All the music on this disc is logical, intelligible, and gripping... It is a joy to hear Raphael Wallfisch on such splendid form... Such cello works of real worth are few; Standford’s should join their number... a particularly stimulating disc."
