Studio Master: CKD528  Download only NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'Two rich orchestral pieces round off the disc, but the star is the concerto. The second movement's instantly likeable soundtrack-style nobility in particualr deserves to be a classical radio favourite' (BBC Music Magazine)» More

Stanford: Choral Music
Studio Master: CDA68174  NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'Recordings of Stanford’s great choral anthems are not short on the ground, but if any choir has justification to return to them it’s Trinity Cambridge … by taking the music seriously, treating it with respect but not reverence, [Layton] gives it a freshness calculated to disarm even the staunchest of musical non-believers' (Gramophone)» More

Walton: Violin Concerto, Partita & Hindemith Variations
Studio Master: CDA67986  NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'Proceedings are launched in fine style with a supremely affectionate and agreeably lithe account of the immensely personable concerto that Walton conceived for the great Jascha Heifetz. Anthony Marwood proves an enviably secure and articulate soloist' (Gramophone)» More

Walton: Violin Concerto, Partita & Hindemith Variations
Studio Master: CDA67986  NEW  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'Anthony Marwood's un-flashy individualism seems to be operating at an opposite pole to the Heifetz way, and generates memorable results of its own. While Marwood has all the virtuosity that the music demands, nothing is rushed' (BBC Music Magazine)» More

Studio Master: LSO0798  Download only  Studio Master FLAC & ALAC downloads available

'Ce qui impressionne surtout, c'est la maîtrise de l'agogique pour passer d'un état à un autre et articuler les plans qui se meuvent à des vitesses différentes. La remarquable prise de son révèle les moindres détails, laisse respirer les textures, et met en valeur les solistes du LSO, qui se couvrent de gloire tour à tour' (Diapason, France)
