No Notes Found.
The ever-dependable Bournemouth SO and Richard Hickox on fine form, and a well-balanced team of soloists… makes a far from trivial contribution to the Tippett canon.
Gramophone on CHAN 9384 (Triple Concerto)

Hickox’s interpretation is powerful, with the chorus in good voice and the recording vivid and well balanced.
The Telegraph on CHAN 9123 (A Child of Our Time)

Chandos, as usual, is a first-class producer, with committed and taut performances, and beautifully natural, yet dynamic recordings.
