"... the E major Violin Sonata is ... gigantic in scale and presents many technical difficulties. McAslan rises to the occassion handsomely and is accompanied skillfully by Michael Dussek. The general feeling I got ion first hearing was a gorgeous work, not bombastic. Lewis Foreman's notes fill you in nicely. One can only hope that more violinists will explore this fine piece now that it is on records."
"For those who like the early-20th century school of English music, this CD is for you. Highly recommended."
