VIRTUOSO ****
Jonathan Scott, Bridgewater Hall, Manchester

The brazen packaging of this release on the Scott brother's own label - 'virtuoso' in capitals across the front and no fewer than five full-page shots of Jonathan looking, er, virtuosic - leaves itself no room to disappoint. Nor does it: it's great fun, and impressive for Scott's attention to detail. The Bridgewater Hall's Marcussen, which comes over headphones so well, is a willing vehicle for the froth of Gordon Nevin's Will o' the Wisp, through an energetic take on Boellmann's Suite Gothique, to Jean Guillou's mad arrangement of Prokoviev's expressionistic Toccata. Enjoy!
