"... Bevan's purity of tone and discreet yet telling way with words can be by turns unnerving and alluring in the Baudelaire settings... Middleton, as one might expect, is marvellously insightful, playing throughout with weight as well as grace and subtlety..."

"... it feels as though these performers have got the scale of this music just right: nothing forced, no obvious straining for effect, just fresh, thoughtful and committed interpretations shot through with poetry and alertness. This is real chamber music..."

",,, The Sacconi Quartet, for whom the medium-length String was composed, play throughout with élan and what sounds like a complete understanding of the ebb and flow of each of these quite diverse pieces.

In the Piano Concerto, Gardner brings to the table flair, drive and an almost Tchaikovskian lushness to the string sound, which matches will Bavouzet’s commanding manner in the piano’s opening flourish. But there’s also a sense of playfulness ...”
