Work Title


I don’t pretend to have heard more than a few of the reputed 100-plus recordings of the ‘Warsaw Concerto’; but none of the modern versions I have to hand seems to have the freshness, urgency and lack of self-indulgence of this very fine new version. That’s a pointer to the high level of playing and interpretation to be found throughout this ever fascinating and altoghether quite delightful selection of Addinsell’s film music. ...It’s by no means just nostalgia, of course, that makes Addinsell’s film music well worth exploring, and this generously filled CD is undoubtedly the best single-CD selection now available.
Andrew Lamb, Gramophone Magazine, 5/1/2003
