Reviews

‘In spite of the prevalence of D major, this disc is very enjoyable and has been well prepared and performed.’ Gramophone, July 1957 (English Baroque Trumpet Concertos)

 

‘The Mudge Concerto […] is a solemn and imposing work […] the Bond, seventeen years later, is only slightly more inclined toward the galant style […] The French players, under Colombo, find some of the tempos a little elusive in the Clarke, but cope very well with the double-dotted rhythms at the openings of both concertos.’ Music and Letters, October 1957 (English Baroque Trumpet Concertos)

‘The direction and playing are expert.’ Stereo Review, July 1961 (Royal Brass Music)

‘If, like me, you find brass choirs irresistible, you should enjoy dipping into this collection.’ High Fidelity, October 1961 (Royal Brass Music)
