5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, 15 May 2008
This review is from: Elgar: Sospiri - Music for Violin and Piano (Audio CD)
I have a small confession to make. I bought this CD primarily because I was acquainted with the pianist Julian Milford during our study for the Bar Exams. I thought I should finally get round to listening to one of his recorded performances.

It is simply excellent. The mood is captured perfectly and each note from both instruments seems coaxed rather than forced in a manner that only the most dedicated professionals seem to be able to achieve: the violin and piano seem to be melded with the players.

When played through a stock car CD player battling with road noise it is vibrant enough, when played in a quiet home, away from distractions through a half-way decent hi-fi it is even better.

I am not one for listening to 'proper' music simply as a sound-track to another activity, there are plenty of pop choices for that.

This CD deserves to be listened to when there is nothing to distract, save perhaps a good red wine, so every note can be heard.

Excellent work indeed.
