Thomson possesses an intuitive understanding that allows more of the music to compel than one had dared hope… The London Philharmonic plays beautifully…
The Independent

Towards the end of any major, protracted set of recordings, especially when it has maintained such an outstanding high standard as the Bryden/Chandos series of Baxs orchestral music, there must be quite some trepidation that even Jove will nod and that the mould of excellence will be broken. Well, Thomson has yet to put a foot wrong!
