CD - Walton and Barber violin concertos

 

Walton and Barber concertos on Signum Classics, Thomas Bowes and the Malmo Opera Orchestra conducted by Joseph Swensen

…captures every aspect of this concerto almost to perfection… he yields to no one in terms of sensitivity and technical mastery; you get the feeling that he knows every bar of this concerto inside out… Again, I want intimacy…a poet to capture the magic of this moment; Thomas Bowes certainly qualifies… Thomas Bowes: sensitive, refined, thoughtful, elegant, as well as brilliant, even flamboyant…

Piers Burton-Page on Building a Library (Walton concerto) CD Review 19th October 2013, BBC Radio 3.
