Ball: Celtic Twilight (Omnibus Classics, 2010)
Gould, Emerald Concert Orchestra conducted by Christopher Ball
would gladly go hear the English violinist Thomas Gould play almost anything anywhere...Rarely
have I heard a violinist of Gould's generation (he was born in 1983) with the
range of tasteful expression, the enormous color palette, and the ability to say
something with every note. His sound has a glow such as one experiences in the
soft light of a summer evening."
Gould makes a ravishing sound on a 1754 Gagliano, sustaining the concerto's melodic
lines with a noble assurance and heart-warming intensity that compels throughout."
Strad, Julian Haylock
