Notes & Reviews:

Deeply committed to world premiere performances and recordings of new music, the Royal Northern College of Music Wind Orchestra is under the direction of Clark Rundell, with guest conductor Mark Heron. Robert Russell Bennett is best known for his orchestrations for over three-hundred musicals between 1920 and 1975. His rich career left us a heritage of more than two-hundred original compositions, more than thirty of which were written for wind band.

MusicWeb International, 8th November 2016
Delightful, satisfying and agreeable music.

Gramophone Magazine, December 2016
These are bright-eyed, upfront performances, alert to Bennett's kaleidoscopic sense of instrumental colour, and delivered with energy and an enjoyable hint of swing. If you don't get quite the same wall-of sound punch that Frederick Fennell used to deliver in this repertoire, Chandos's warm and clear recorded sound is unquestionably more pleasant on the ear.
