Review of the premiere of Tim Garland's Double Concerto given by the CBSO 10 12 2009 by John Watson:
"Blending jazz and classical music is a difficult art, but the brilliant saxophonist Tim Garland is an imaginative composer who can excel in many styles of music. His new Double Concerto for Saxophone and Cello, given its world premiere last night, featured his Argentian-born friend Eduardo Vassallo section leader of the CBSO cellos.
Garland, who has worked with the great American pianist Chick Corea and is a member of the UK jazz group Acoustic Triangle, has created a most extraordinary, complex and colourful work. The Double Concerto swirled and raged like a great South American river, the saxophone and cello at times being in danger of being swamped by the orchestral forces around them. But it was captivating music, with strong performances from Garland on tenor and soprano saxophones and immaculate intonation on the cello’s high notes from Vassallo".
