Notes & Reviews:

The Independent on Sunday, 8th January 2012
Performed in both the original and revised versions, Copland's hot, slick Clarinet Concerto bookends a programme that incorporates waltz, schmaltz, tango and klezmer. Not all of it works. Brahms's Hungarian Dances are downgraded to vehicle status as a showcase for Fr÷st's dexterity. But elsewhere (Piazzola, Hillborg, H÷gberg) soloist and orchestra sizzle.

Gramophone Magazine, March 2012
Almost every piece is a novelty in Martin Fr÷st's dance-themed programme...This partnership of soloists and orchestra is an inspired one, not least in the smaller-scale pieces...There is a quirky and highly personal essay in lieu of booklet-note from Fr÷st himself.

International Record Review, February 2012
No point in pulling my punches: this is a wonderful disc. The playing is superb, and these dance-inspired pieces will put a skip in your own step...It's obvious that Frost and his Australian colleagues must have had enormous fun recording this programme and their enjoyment bubbles through at every turn. Frost's virtuosity is a delight in its own right, but it's deployed in the service of unquenchable good humour.
