Walton CD named Gramophone Critic's Choice for 2010

Recorded live at Woolsey Hall, this full length commercial CD released on the Nimbus record labelshowcases the artistic mastery of the NHSO and Music Director William Boughton conductingWilliam Walton’s Symphony No. 1 and his Violin Concerto featuring internationally-renownedviolinist and Connecticut native Kurt Nikkanen. “These are splendidly idiomatic performances, displaying a natural understanding of the flexibilityneeded in interpreting Walton's jazzy syncopated writing...it adds to the attractions of the discthat this ideal coupling of two pre-war masterpieces is a rare, if not unique pairing.” GramophoneMagazine MORE INFO >
