Jamie Walton and Daniel Grimwood continue their performance partnership with this recording of sonatas for cello and piano by Shostakovich, Britten and Prokofiev. Both Walton and Grimwood are accomplished performers who regularly work together on disc and in concert, as well as being highly active in the wider musical world. A recent highlight for Walton is his Noth York Moors Chamber Music Festival (where both he and Grimwood performed), which was nominated for a Royal Philharmonic Society award in 2011.

The Telegraph said of their previous release ( SIG 252 Chopin & Saint-Saëns) "Jamie Walton’s mature cello timbre and perceptiveness in matters of interpretation are winningly applied to this coupling of two 19th-century sonatas... Finely honed stylistic judgement here goes hand in hand with re-creative panache."

"...I am happy to recommend this unreservedly"

David W Moore - American Record Guide - July/August 2012


"...Walton’s sound is gorgeous, as is that of Daniel Grimwood, made evident in the rich and immediate Signum recording. Both players are technically flawless, play with the utmost musical intelligence and sensitivity, and are totally at one in all three works... it is hard to imagine how it can surpass this outstanding disc."
 
William Hedley - MusicWeb-International.com - July 2012


"...The natural warmth of Walton’s playing, matching that of Rostropovich himself, is finely enhanced by the crispness and fresh focus of Grimwood’s accompaniments. Clear, well-balanced recording helps to make this a first-rate issue, with illuminating notes filling in the background behind each work."

Helen Wallace - BBC Music magazine  Awards Issue 2012


"...This is another successful disc for a partnership that clearly enjoys playing and recording together. Their forthright style in each of these three pieces pays dividends, and when all three are listened to consecutively they serve as an appropirate reminder of Rostropovich’s incalculable influence on the cello repertoire of the 20th-century."

Ben Hogwood - Classical Source.com - December 2011
