"Pure, velvety and wonderfully expressive….It is not impossible to believe that this was the sort of sound that Orpheus himself might have been capable of"

'For me, the Arcadia Quartet is – at least concerning Janáček – the cutting edge currently among European interpreters……Outstanding!'

“… utterly moving, as a result of a truly great modesty which cannot be replaced by simplicity or unpretentiousness; a modesty without any sentimentality. The musicians know, with minute precision, how to guard the boundary between the intimacy of chamber music and the sweeping grandeur of a large-scale concert, only achievable by artists whose capacities and experience are on an equally high level.”

“… Wallfisch gives the finest account on cello I’ve ever heard… Wallfisch delivers a beautiful adagio and York voices every line with superb clarity and coherence, so crucial in this turbulent work…” ****

”No living cellist has done more to promote the British cello concerto than Raphael Wallfisch…"

...one of the most prolific and well-known clarinet soloists of the past quarter century

Piers Lane, Piano

“London-based Australian pianist Piers Lane added a superb mixture of poetry and drama to his crystalline pianism, Davis ensuring that the orchestra delivered the music’s often ebullient sophistication lightly. An encore of Beethoven refracted through the lens of Dudley Moore provided cheeky wit.” ★★★★ Tony Way, The Age, November 24th 2019
