Editor's info:
Timothy Ridout gives us the opportunity to discover the splendid viola version of Elgar's famous Cello Concerto - an arrangement approved by the composer, who conducted it's premiere in 1930. In addition to this deeply moving work, he gives us a powerful, poetic reading of Bloch's all too rarely performed Suite for Viola and Orchestra, in which the Swiss composer indulged his fascination with the Orient.

The young British viola-player's account of the Cello Concerto as transcribed by Lionel Tertis is a compelling addition to the piece's distinguished discography on its own terms, with sensitive support from the BBC Symphony Orchestra under Martyn Brabbins.

Gramophone Magazine, February 2023 - Editor's Choice
Ridout is a strong, personable player whose deft handling of the Scherzo and heartfelt playing of the Adagio make the concerto’s central episodes exceptionally memorable.

Limelight Magazine, February 2023 - Recording of the Month
Taking full advantage of his instrument’s tone and flexibility, Ridout proceeds to give a thoughtful reading, one full of moody fantasy and wistful romance. The BBC Symphony Orchestra under Martyn Brabbins is a sensitive and sympathetic partner here, giving the soloist plenty of space in which to reflect, and keeping the volume well under control where necessary.

The Guardian * * * *
As Timothy Ridout’s fine performance with Martyn Brabbins and the BBC Symphony Orchestra shows, the concerto is entirely convincing as a viola work…It could even be argued that the central pair of movements are more effective in the viola version than in the original – Ridout makes the scherzo fabulously nimble and precise, and the long aching lines of the Adagio even more plangent.
