Walton has been heralded as the most important composer of the 20th century. I knew little of his work and wanted to 'hear' for myself. His musical range is impressive and I feel that he has influenced many contemporary composers.
"…Janowski's pacing and preparation of the orchestra is masterly. Reacting with sensitivity to the score, the tender & reflective scenes are given space to breathe without taxing the singers into strained tone. (…) The more one hears, the more one appreciates the vocal acting as well as the superlative orchestral contribution (make no mistake, there are at least 3 world class orchestras resident in Berlin today). This listener (at least) is eagerly awaiting the next installment of the Ring." ~sa-cd.net

In March 2012, over the course of four nights in four different venues across London, Bonamassa put on a concert event unparalleled in the history of popular music. Each night featured unique set lists and arrangements constructed with a distinct theme in mind – the early power trio jams, the blues, rock and roll, and an acoustic/electric set showcasing Joe's best.
