The Scotsman on Lalor's Ballade and Autostrada Waltz
Posted by Anni Heino on 9 September, 2009
'Then there was Stephen Lalor’s Ballade, entering on sonorous harp strings and developing into a lush melody – road music, you might say (we were told to imagine the mandolin as a small Fiat), which swerved suddenly into his engagingly eccentric Autostrada Waltz.' (Jim Gilchrist, The Scotsman 18 August 2009)
