Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

Robert Plane’s highly responsive performance of the concerto also uses a wide range of dynamic, and movingly brings out the work’s sense of improvisatory lyricism. Not to be outdone, the Naxos collection offers the Three Soliloquies, plus an orchestration of the five lovely Bagatelles, which is even more evocative than the original version with piano. The Introit for Violin and Orchestra is most sensitively played by Lesley Hatfield. The Romance is hardly less engaging, while Severn Rhapsody shows its composer spinning his pastoral evocation in the manner of Butterworth. All this music is most persuasively presented by the Northern Sinfonia under Howard Griffiths and the Naxos recording has plenty of warmth and atmosphere.
