This Chandos series continues to offer insights into less well-known Walton. The substantial early Toccata for violin and piano receives a committed performance from Sillito and Milne; Bonell captures the mood of the masterly Five Bagatelles for guitar; Milne and Dowdeswell convey the charm and wit of Duets for Children. The song cycle for tenor and guitar, Anon in Love, written for Pears and Bream, is heard in a marvellously fresh performance by Ainsley and Bonell. Terry Barfoot
