Performance ***** Sound *****
"This fascinatingly planned programme showcases the Swiss composers who came within Busoni’s orbit during his self-imposed Zürich exile during World War I, and were all affected by the experience.... The performers sound sympathetic and entirely at ease with this unfamiliar music; Andrew Zolinksy’s fine account of Busoni’s recension of Liszt’s first Mephisto Waltz is another compelling reason to buy this beautifully recorded disc."
Calum MacDonald - BBC Music Magazine – November
"...All these works are given reliable, sympathetic performances from the young musicians involved, most of them British, in first-rate recorded sound; Andrew Zolinsky’s account of the Frey Fantasy is particularly fine. Walton’s useful notes give thumbnail sketches of all the composers, and their careers; and the cover design is elegant and attractive This is an endlessly disc and it deserves your close attention."
