‘Charlier and Tozer turn in splendidly spirited performances in excellent sound.’
BBC Music Magazine on CHAN 9880 (Violin Sonatas)
‘The performances … are outstanding, a well-deserved tribute to a neglected composer who was far more than an academic. The recording is sumptuously atmospheric.’
The Penguin Guide Yearbook on CHAN 9345 (A Solway Symphony etc)
‘This is quite a discovery. Purchasers of Chandos’ two previous McEwen discs … will know that the Scottish head of RAM was not merely a distinguished administrator but a gifted and original orchestral composer.’
BBC Music Magazine on CHAN 9669 (Hymn on the morning of Christ’s Nativity)
'It would be hard to imagine more sympathetic advocacy for this repertoire, and the sound quality displays customary house standards.'
International Piano Magazine
'But the chief quality of McEwen's piano music is a sense of international flavour' It would all be for naught but for the always scintillating playing of Tozer''
