"...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."

"...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."
