For Sterndale Bennett’s bi-centenary year, Unicorn presents a re-release of three of the composer’s most important works, expertly played by Davan Wetton’s Milton Keynes forces and piano soloist, Malcolm Binns.
‘The sound is first class, with a particularly seductive quality of piano tone. Here is an enterprising and well-produced debut record from Milton Keynes.’ Gramophone
‘Both performances are uncommonly good ones. Malcolm Binns is a persuasive advocate… Wetton paces both works admirably and clearly has sympathy for them… excellent sound and a good balance.’ Penguin Guide
