" Richard Hickox draws performances both brilliant and warmly persuasive from the LSO, with Moray Welsh a movingly expressive soloist."
The Gramophone Editor's Choice
Don Quixote under Bernard Haitink
"Moray Welsh stepped out from his place at the front of the cellos to conjure up the errant knight's exploits, and was especially moving in his death scene."
Bridge " Oration "
"Moray Welsh produced a wonderful tone, combined with a sense of passionate conviction."
Hong Kong Times
"Moray Welsh brought total conviction to the death of Don Quixote, as well as subtle and vibrant musicianship."
"El Pais" Madrid
"Moray Welsh is outstanding in the Fantasia and Threnody, and Hickox conducts with a sense of passionate commitment. A deelply satisfying disc no musical Anglophile will want to be without.People dont seem to realize that Moray Welsh is one of the finest living cellists.”
Paul Snook "Fanfare"
“ ....a febrile, urgent account of Debussy's evanescent Cello Sonata, boldly rhetorical, with pianist Simon Rattle enthusiastically responsive to the wide range of colour and dynamics from Moray Welsh's agile bow.”
“ On the evidence of this impressive new performance, Moray Welsh probably has stronger credentials in Rachmaninov's majestic Sonata than any other British cellist of his generation, having studied under Rostropovich at the Moscow Conservatoire.”
BBC Music Magazine
“ This was a totally invigorating performance, assuming as little as it conceded, and tough with a resilient character all its own. Mr Welsh plays on his cello as if he is carving the shape of the music out of seasoned wood.”
"The solo cellist, Moray Welsh, will remain longer in the memory than anything else. Moray Welsh proved himself a truly top class interpreter, whose highly structured musicianship and luminous tone, which is rarely heard in this intensity, totally caprured the audience."
Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung
"Moray Welsh played Walton's Cello Concerto with the utmost fluency, refinement and charm - an eloquent performance."
" You won't be disappointed if you are lucky enough to hear Elgar's Cello Concerto played by Moray Welsh. I doubt whether it would be possible to draw these tones more distinctly or with greater skill than did Moray Welsh. In the art of this British cellist, a versatile and never failing technique is combined with a perfect ability to interpret the music."
"An exceptionel interpretation of the solo part by Moray Welsh, a big-boned performance of powerful physical and emotional presence, which stretched, relaxed and tightened with the naturalness of a living organism."
The Daily Telegraph
"Moray Welsh's incisively pointed, strongly-bowed patterning of every figuration, his refined chamber-music making with the woodwind, the variety of voice within each cantabile line, are only random examples of an exquisitely imagined and executed performance."
" A cellist of innate nobility."
