Review

This is one of the best discs of his orchestral music to have come my way in recent years and I recommend it warmly --IRR,Mar'11

Watkins is an interpreter of compelling seriousness,whose musical understanding operates at a profound level.As the cadenza unfolds,and the cello's broadening arpeggios emerge into the sunlight of the finale,accompanied by a glorious,glistening trumpet,one realises he and Gardiner have created not just a great climax,but a truly symphonic collaboration. Performance ***** Recording ***** DISC OF THE MONTH --BBC Music Magazine,Apr'11

Britten's Gloriana, on the life of Elizabeth I, has never established itself in the opera house, but it's full of wonderful music. Gardner and the BBC Philharmonic bring out the melancholy undertow and the textural subtlety lurking under the music's ceremonial surface. The performance of the Cello Symphony with Paul Watkins is similarly sensitive --Daily Telegraph 25/03/11

Gardiner's operatic experience tells in a truly theatrical suite from Gloriana. --Gramophone,May'11
