Raphael - Ray - Terroni, a multi-gifted musician, was many things in a professional life that ended too soon: teacher (privately and at the London College of Music), examiner, festival director, administrator, and crusader for a vast range of music, both the known, for which he never lost his inquisitive enthusiasm, and (particularly) unknown repertoire which he explored discerningly and promoted tirelessly. This recording, following his pioneering account of Scott's Sonata No.3, was entirely down to Ray's vision and efforts. His recorded legacy, which should been larger, includes Lennox Berkeley, Goossens, Scott, Leighton, Holbrooke, Cooke, Milford, Arthur Butterworth and Eric Coates. It's impressive and rewarding. This, displaying so many of his strengths and enthusiasms, was always especially close to his heart though.
This disc should be of interest to anyone who enjoys exploring early twentieth-century chamber music, and not just music by British composers, since both Bridge and Scott were cosmopolitan figures. With unobtrusively clean sound and detailed notes, this can be warmly recommended. --Nigel Simeone, International Record Review, July 2013
