             Review for Volumes 1 - 6
"...Throughout these six collections the BBC National Orchestra of Wales are on top form; they obviously enjoy the music. Hickox is persuasively idiomatic an spontaneous, and the Chandos recording is first class)"

The Pengiun Guide – 1000 Greatest Classical Recordings 2011-12
 


'Richard Hickox and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales are first rate champions in all these pieces… and the recordings are every bit as good as the musicianship deserves.'
BBC Music Magazine Pick of the month

'Hickox's performances… are models of clarity and articulation…'
The Guardian on CHAN 9401 (Rubbra Symphonies Nos 4, 10 & 11)

'Bridge's place in the Edwardian era of English music becomes ever more important with issues such as these.'
Sunday Telegraph

'Thanks to all concerned are in order - for Hickox's perceptive interpretation, the players' dedication and sensitivity and last but not least, the exemplary recorded sound that we rather take for granted on this label. Strongly recommended.'
Gramophone on CHAN 9481 (Rubbra Symphonies Nos 2 & 6)

''this is a very good disc indeed - a fine start to an important project. Furhter helpings are eagerly awaited.'
Gramophone

…a fine start to an important project. Further helpings are eagerly awaited.
Gramophone

A fascinating, revealing disc… Richard Hickox and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales are first-rate champions in all these pieces… and the recordings are every bit as good as the musicianship deserves.
