"... Koch is one of those intrepid musicians who are at home on any sort of keyboard instrument, performing music of any era, and he brings a Haydnesque charm to this piece. His cohorts are clearly enjoying themselves with this playful music, and I hope that Himmelpfortgrund's future recordings tap into this same spontaneity and warmth."

“At times it felt a bit like attending a concert organised by the Clangers, but the packing never intruded on the music, and the performances were typically excellent”

“Largely ignoring the brief, Thea Musgrave responded to an entire room, the museum’s Energy Hall, rather than an object in her Power Play, a quasi-chamber concerto for orchestra, with breezy contrapuntal lines and warm timbres... David Sawer also found some rhythmic energy in Coachman Chronos, inspired by the York-London Mail Coach, with lively parts for French horn and cornet.”
