Danny Driver is superb... and is partnered by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra under one of the most exciting young British conductors I have heard for some time...this disc has to be counted one of the most important contributions to British recorded music for some considerable time. --International Record Review, IRR Outstanding
