“… Rob Fokkens‘ single movement concerto is exquisitely crafted.. complex counterpoint, bustling percussion, and thrillingly stratospheric scoring for violin soloist performed with panache and precision by the excellent Harriet Mackenzie… Deborah Pritchard‘s Wall of Water (2014) is a vivid response to the tumultuous seascapes of painter Maggi Hambling, with both composition and performance crackling with energy. In satisfying contrast, Emily Doolittle‘s falling still is a delicate meditation on the natural world, solo violin floating above a cushion of strings… The disc is completed by Paul Patterson’s agile and characterful Allusions and David Matthews’ Romanza (2012), a daringly luscious waltz which invites Mackenzie’s sumptuous tone to soar…performances are captivating.”
