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."

 

Julian Haylock, Sinfini Music (August 8th, 2013)
"British cellist Richard Harwood has created a unique album of film music that works stunningly well without the pictures themselves....This extraordinary recital is rounded off by five world premieres....Harwood plays them all with supreme dedication and musical insight, captured in exemplary sound of stunning realism."

Mark Walker, Classical Ear (August 16th, 2013)
"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."

Geoff Brown, BBC Music Magazine (December 2013)
"Music for solo cello by film composers: an engaging idea delivered by Harwood with fire."

 

Steven A. Kennedy, Film Score Monthly (February 2014)
"Overall this is an excellent album of solo concert music with great performances of all the works in question."

Robert Hugill, Planet Hugill (August 16th, 2013)
"This fascinating disc is a compilation of concert music written by some well known film composers. But what makes it so striking is that Richard Harwood has assembled a group of pieces written for solo cello, not a genre you would associate with composers like Ennio Morricone and Miklos Rosza....Harwood's performances are exemplary in all respects."

Michael Beek, BeekBlog (August 25th, 2013)
"Harwood’s album, released by Resonus Classics, is available digitally only and has genuine appeal. It’s a fascinating window into non-film music by film composers and the performance by the in-demand cellist is at times truly virtuosic and reveals a deep appreciation of the material."
