“... Edward Gardner’s conducting of Strauss’s Nietzsche-inspired symphonic poem is impressively flowing and direct while still being flexible and also alive to small details; in return the member of the National Youth Orchestra play with confidence poise and bravura, and a lack of indulgence on Gardner’s part is refreshing to the music as a whole... However, it’s The Planets that takes the bouquets ... this is a notable version of The Planets.”    ****

"You'll be hard pushed to find a disc of Pärt choral music more enjoyable than this. Immaculate control and balance does not mean lack of drama - there's intensity and vibrancy too." *****

“...This music certainly brings out good things in the Tickle-Fiddlers, who fully justify their name. There is real joy in the music-making. The ensemble-playing, under the artistic direction of Robert Rawson, is crisp and buoyant. And even the soloists – cellist Kinga Gáborjáni, violinist Rodolfo Richter and harpsichordist David Wright, who contributes a delicate fugue by Bohuslav Matej Cernohorský – wear their virtuosity lightly.”

“... These performances of his [Guretzky] concertos are every bit as frisky and fun as the music itself.”  ****

"Colourful and characterful playing by this Lugano-based orchestra makes this exploration of music by 20th-century Italian composers a pleasure. Casella's quirky and quick Divertimento per fulvia is a particular treat."  ****

“... The trio offers a strong sense of partnership, with the Bernstein bounding along in fine spirit. The Foote shines wonderfully and is well worth discovering.”
