‘It is a fine piece, at times not far from Walton in manner, and Lydia Mordkovitch obviously enjoys its resourceful writing for her instrument.’
Gramophone

'Anyone interested in English music of the past century must get to know the phenomenal Violin Concerto by the almost-but-not-yet-forgotten- John Veale. Go for it.'
Fanfare

‘We’ve long needed a good modern recording of Britten’s Violin Concerto and here it is at last.’
Best available version - Britten BBC Music Magazine

‘Richard Hickox’s Chandos version rivals even the composers own definitive account in its passion and perception, and must now be regarded as first choice … outstanding performances.’
The Penguin Guide Yearbook on CHAN 8983/4 (War Requiem)

‘Britten’s tautly worked yet rhapsodic, spirited and searching Violin Concerto is given a multi-dimensional performance by Lydia Mordkovitch…’
The Telegraph

‘… a fine performance by Lydia Mordkovich, full of red-blooded passion, yet lyrical when the music demands …’
The Times on CHAN 9784 (Bruch Violin Concerto)
