A series of recording sessions in Hall One of the Sage Gateshead, with the Royal Northern Sinfonia conducted by Martin Yates plus soloists Leon McCawley (piano) and Sergey Levitin (violin), yielded this superb disc of early works by Irish composer Charles Villiers Stanford (1852-1924). The Piano Concerto is an engaging work, with both poise and a flowing solo line – brilliantly performed here by Leon McCawley – but the Violin Concerto is the more ambitious canvas, and demonstrates how quickly the young Stanford was maturing. He had intended it for a virtuoso of his time, Italian violinist Guido Papini, but in the event it was never played. In this recording, Sergey Levitin’s expressive and authoritative performance helps bring the music vividly to life.

“The Dutton recording is forthright and the performances from everyone are a spirited delight ...” “Dutton, Yates, the Royal Northern Sinfonia, McCawley, Levitin and Dibble can take a collective bow.” “... this makes a solidly enjoyable addition to the Stanford shelf.” Rob Barnett, MusicWeb International, April 2018

"Standford learnt a lot from Brahms and Mendelssohn if these ... works are anything to go by. Enjoyable performances all roound." OC, Brief Notes, BBC Music Magazine
