John Williams: "Richard Harwood’s masterful playing of the Three Pieces for Solo Cello is greatly impressive, and I’m deeply grateful to him for his commitment to this music."

"Only an ambitious performer would release a disc of unfamiliar music by a group of composers known mainly for their film music. And when it turns out that this aptly titled disc consists of pieces for solo instrument only, one starts to question the sanity of such a venture. But you needn't worry when the performer in question is so completely and utterly in control of the expressive and technical dimensions of his instrument and its repertoire as Richard Harwood."
Pwyll ap Siôn, Gramophone

"Throughout a generous programme, warmly captured by the Resonus recording team, Harwood's resonant cello ranges widely from the rigorous old-school workouts of Ernst Toch and Miklós Rózsa to a descriptive contribution from John Williams (with its plucked and picked passages imitating a banjo), to the restrained post-modernism of some of the performer's contemporaries, who provide him with no fewer than five world premiere recordings."
Mark Walker, Classical Ear

"Music for solo cello by film composers: an engaging idea delivered by Harwood with fire."
Geoff Brown, BBC Music Magazine
