"The orchestral passages appropriately contrast the piano’s role with drama and tension. The work brims with felicitous melodies and dramatic flourishes that engage the mind and heart...

Robert Moon - - May 2002

"...These two concertos are exhilaratingly performed by Benjamin Frith with the Northern Sinfonia, with Frith’s sparklingly clear articulation in rapid scales and figuration magnetizing the attention in music that can easily seem just trivial.

"Benjamin Frith can draw out the lyrical music to dangerous lengths... The Northern Sinfonia, with limited opportunities, is crisp and confident in support - a word, too for the beautifully tuned clarinet solos in the slow movement of No.5."
Richard Wigmore - BBC Music Magazine - March 2002
