The vibrant young violinist Jacqueline Roche, accompanied by pianist Robert Stevenson, explores two notable additions to the repertoire of twentieth century British romantic violin music in their attractive Dutton Epoch recital. Walford Davies’s big-boned four-movement Second Violin Sonata, published in 1900, and Holbrooke’s attractive and lyrical Third Violin Sonata of 1926 are commandingly played. To complete the programme comes the charming Sonata of 1925 by Cyril Rootham, and – with different artists (Justin Pearson and Sophia Rahman) – the Arthur Benjamin Cello Sonatina of 1939

BBC Music Magazine

February 2009


“Holbrooke is the most distinctive figure in this exploration of the byways of the English violin sonata repertory. The performances are strongly committed with the neo-classical Arthur Benjamin Cello Sonatina providing a delightful bonus.”

Gramophone Magazine

March 2009

“These are fascinating byways of British music - pieces one never expected to hear - but with performances like these anything could happen. Some of them could even enter the mainstream.”
