Reviews

‘the simple and relatively literal transcriptions of ‘Jesu joy’ (Cantata No. 147), the flute Siciliano and ‘Sheep may safely graze’ [are] all played with calm grace … and at the other extreme of the art of transcription, Rachmaninov’s very free version of movements from the E major Violin Partita … in which Fergus-Thompson shows delicious delicacy.’ Gramophone, October 1991
