Ben's Reviews

An imaginative, creative opening and very well presented. Staging was excellent, thought through and well prepared. Very well punctuated. Sensitive playing and warm sound. Good contrasts of mood and performance between broad and sustained to spacious and lighter articulation. Plenty of musical personality!

Stellar individual playing combined with superb ensemble skills. They programme very interesting music, often commissioning arrangements to suit a particular theme.
