Penguin Guide, January 2009

The Naxos recording brings the accomplished Rebecca Hirsch as soloist, with excellent orchestral support from the BBC Scottish Symphony under Lionel Friend. Her performances hold their own, and the value of the disc is enhanced by another première recording, that of Rawsthorne’s Cortèges. It is an imaginative and at times haunting piece, very well played and recorded here.

The Strad

"Hirsch conjures enchantment throughout, catching the zest of Rawsthorne's Bartok and Hindemith-inspired scherzo writing as alluring as she evokes the passionate lyricism"


"here is an enormously rewarding issue as well as a bargain of the first order"


"The performances bring out the best in this intense and very engaging music"
