Jamie Walton has proved himself as a leading performer in UK’s musical life; as a performer in his widely praised concerto and sonata recordings, and as a festival director in his work as founder of the North York Moors Festival,.
Here is what The Telegraph wrote on 8th March 2013:
“The two concertos on either side of this lovely miniature, ably supported by the Philharmonia, confirm Walton as an artist with secure intuition in terms of style and with a manner of performing that speaks with natural fluency, eloquence and strength of purpose.”
Listen now as Jamie Walton, performs beautifully the Fauré, “Après Un Rêve”.
And let’s hear now the Rachmaninoff – Sonata Op.19 in G minor: III. Andante:
