Reviews Overview

"Listeners to BBC Radio 4 will already be familiar with Carole Boyd (aka Lynda Snell in The Archers) and Zeb Soanes (newsreader and announcer on Today, PM, The News Quiz and the Shipping Forecast), the reciters on this new recording of Walton's evergreen, giddily inventive Fagade. Their alliance with the customarily attentive John Wilson and his razor-sharp seven-piece ensemble is infectiously enjoyable."
Andrew Achenbach, Gramophone (June 2017)

"Under John Wilson's direction the seven musicians are wonderfully alert, giving us music full of dazzle and vibrancy, yet with a subtlety too."
Robert Hugill, Planet Hugill (May 2017)
