Notes & Reviews:

The individual volumes of piano concertos by John Field have over the years been very successful both critically and commercially. Chandos now offers these recordings as a limited edition box. The package includes four CDs covering all seven concertos and several smaller pieces. Miceal O'Rourke is the soloist with the London Mozart Players conducted by Matthias Bamert.

American Record Guide
O'Rourke seems to have adopted the style of Field himself; he has a lovely touch and flow.

Gramophone Magazine
all praise to those responsible...

Gramophone Magazine
O'Rourke and his partners capture Field's spirit and style to perfection, warmly recorded in a natural acoustic.

The Lady
Field's star is currently shining brighter than ever, thanks in no small measure to the partnership of pianist Miceal O'Rourke and the Matthias Bamert-led London Mozart Players

The Times
O'Rourke's delicate touch is ideal for conveying the charm of Field's music
