Gramophone Critics' Choice December 2014

Gramophone critic Peter Dickinson chose the recent Move Records release Lennox Berkeley: Complete Music for Violin and Piano as his personal best CD of the year in December 2014's edition of the magazine. Of the disc he said: "Real discoveries here, including Sonata No. 1 - lost for 48 years. The Sonatina and Elegy reveal Berkeley's unique charisma. Edwin Paling led the Royal Scottish National Orchestra for over 30 years, while Arabella Teniswood-Harvey is at the University of Tasmania: a fine duo in revelatory performances 25 years after the composer's death."
