James MacMillan conducts his own chamber concertos
‘The third volume in Challenge’s absorbing James MacMillan series contains pieces written for soloist and chamber orchestra. From Ayrshire was originally written for Nicola Benedetti, but is played here with burnished lyricism by German violinist Linus Roth, who scorches the brief, ‘fast-reel’ second movement with virtuosity.’ Terry Blain
