Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

Peter Donohoe offers a faster, fresher version of Harty’s very appealing Piano Concerto than the Chandos rival with Malcolm Binns, though the latter remains enjoyable in its richer sound. Similarly, the Comedy Overture is much faster than on Chandos’s version, and it sparkles in its wit and easy-going energy. The Fantasy Scenes is attractive, light, ‘postcard’ music with a vaguely exotic feel, and prettily scored. This CD is recommended in every way and the sound, though without the sumptuous quality which Chandos obtained with the same orchestra, is very good.
