Many of the works in this programme are not unfamiliar on recordings, but this is the first single-disc release to include all of the composer’s chamber works involving both violin and piano. The presence of the often overlooked Toccata is unusual, and shows a dimension of Walton’s music that is rarely given mention. The disc is the result of a Guildhall School research project entitled ‘Walton: his voice through the violin’, inspired by violinist Matthew Jones’s lifelong love of Walton’s music.
Violinist Matthew Jones and pianist Annabel Thwaite have recorded violin and viola works by Benjamin Britten on 8573136, in which ‘Jones’s playing of both instruments enthralls. Annabel Thwaite’s accompaniments, beautifully shaded and weighted, are on the same superb level’ (BBC Music Magazine).
Matthew Jones can also be heard on Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet arranged for viola and piano (8572318) and his recital of English viola music (8572579), regarded as a programme of ‘consistently fine performances, beautifully recorded’ by Gramophone.
Viola player Sarah-Jane Bradley has also made numerous recordings for Naxos, including a recital of English music (8572761) in which her ‘viola has a singing quality beautifully suited to this essentially ruminative, lyrical repertoire’ (Gramophone). Cellist Tim Lowe performs regularly in the UK and Europe, and has recorded chamber music album for various labels.
