‘[...] probably the greatest young 'cello talent since Jacqueline du Pré' The Strad

‘[...] an articulate musician with zest, spontaneity, technical assurance and a lovely sense of line [...] a major talent' BBC Music Magazine

'...startling dynamic range and phrasing of searing intensity...[an] extraordinary recital captured in exemplary sound of stunning realism.'  Sinfini  

'There's certainly plenty of variety here...what ultimately draws them together is an ability to bring music to life in such a vivid and colourful way. This is music that in fact manages to speak very clearly without the picture, and Harwood's excellent recording does much to reinforce this view.' Gramophone

'Richard Harwood's imaginative recital [is] warmly captured by the Resonus recording team, Harwood's resonant cello ranges widely with no fewer than five world premiere recordings.'  Classical Ear 

This new collection of concert works for solo cello consists of composers primarily known for their screen music scores. It represents the combination of my desire to record a solo album of wonderful, but perhaps less established, concert works with a selection of entirely new repertoire, and my secondary passion of music for film. Generally, one tends to consider composers most known for their classical concert music who also wrote scores for film; but almost never the other way around. This selection features many talented composers who spend, or have spent, the majority of their professional careers working in film - writing music in their own style whilst bringing the director's vision to life through melody.

Often having almost limitless instrumental forces and effects at their disposal, by contrast, I particularly wanted the repertoire to be for solo cello so we are able to hear what these same composers say with just one instrument and no restrictions from scripts, visuals or directors.

Over a number of years I've been lucky to work with most of the featured living composers on the album, recording many of their film scores. Friendships have developed through this studio work and I'm extremely grateful for the support and interest they have all shown in this project. Christopher Gunning, Alex Heffes, Fernando Velázquez and Benjamin Wallfisch so kindly wanted to write new works for this release and I can't thank them enough for their fantastic new works!
