‘This is a recording to treasure and it is above all the sombrely meditative Largo con sordini of the A major concerto that stays in my memory’ (Gramophone)

‘Rachel Brown gives performances it would be hard to better. Her agility and articulation are breathtaking. She and her hyper-alert orchestra realise all the highly strung volatility of Allegros and bring a rhapsodic freedom to the brooding slow movements’ (BBC Music Magazine)

'Brown's playing makes a highly plausible argument for enjoying the richness and diversity of these pieces.' (BBC Record Review)

'Enthralling music, perceptively played’ (International Record Review)

‘Both Goodman’s ensemble and Rachel Brown have the full measure of these quirkily passionate pieces’ (The Times)

‘The performances are magnificent. Brown’s technical command of her instrument is breathtaking … Only the loudest of cheers will do’ (Goldberg)
