Lawrence Hansen
American Record Guide, January 2016

Thomas Allen seems born to sing the solo part in Belshazzar’s Feast, with razor-sharp, pin-point diction and true gravitas. © 2016 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

Jem Cook
Classical CD Choice, September 2015

Apart from watching a relatively youthful Kyung Wha-Chung give a superlative performance of the Walton Violin Concerto, I can see—over the top of André Previn’s head—my younger self, enjoying every second of this superlative tribute to one of the greatest English composers—with a frail-looking Walton himself in the Royal box, visibly moved by the energetic performance that Belshazzar’s Feast is given. Thomas Allen is a superbly declamatory soloist in the latter, and the whole concert is a delight—but a certain historical indulgence is required, technically speaking. …as a document of one of the great evenings in the Royal Festival Hall, this is unmissable—and it goes without saying that Walton aficionados need not hesitate. © 2015 Classical CD Choice Read complete review
