John France
British Classical Music: The Land of Lost Content, September 2013

I have always enjoyed the music of Trevor Duncan. Duncan could rise to an almost impressionistic height with his St Boniface Down. His deeply romantic The Girl from Corsica is one of the loveliest musical portraits in the genre.

Children in the Park was composed in 1954 and features the composer writing innocent music with the backward glance from man for whom these activities are but a pleasant but ever present memory. However there is nothing innocent or childish about the quality of the music.

One cannot listen to this music without being aware that simple as these three pieces may appear, there is a poise that is largely classical: there is no doubt that a master’s hand is at work in these miniatures. They achieve what ‘light music’ does best. They are enjoyable, but also encourage the listener to sentimentalise about a lost way of life. © 2013 British Classical Music: The Land of Lost Content Read complete review



Fanfare

"Every nuance of Duncan's creative intentions is beautifully and idiomatically realized by Penny and his Slovak musicians. Add another gem to this indispensable series"



Gramophone

"This is yet another valuable addition to this richly rewarding series"
