Notes & Reviews:

"While his modern bassoon doesn't produce the fizzing, reedy quality Mozart knew, it's a most alluring sound, especially singing above muted strings in the Andante. The Weber Concerto, Op. 75, which ends the disc is heard literally, as never before. It reveals many hitherto hidden details and nuances, helped by finely incisive, string-playing cutting through the expanded orchestral forces." ***** - George Pratt BBC

'Dazzling. Hyperion's perceptive talent-spotting has produced a charming disc from performers virtually new to the catalogue - unreservedly recommended' (BBC Music Magazine)

'A delightful and generous collection' (Gramophone)

'Dynamic and expressive contrasts are carefully and adroitly created and the orchestra meticulously managed. The result is a lovely and technically superior recording, not to mention another star in the crown of the folks at Hyperion' (Fanfare, USA)

'La Manchester Camerata propose un excellent encadrement orchestral, spirituel, avec des tutti aux contours finement dessinés, une articulation franche et une pulsation énergique' (Répertoire, France)

'Perkins brings out the fun in much of the inspiration as well as the lyrical beauty, warmly accompanied by the Camerata' (The Guardian)

'a recording of airy clarity... a most recommendable disc, with much to enjoy' (International Record Review)

'The playing of the Manchester Camerata (on modern instruments) is excellent throughout... They and their oboist conductor support their principal bassoonist with such care and attention that it is fair to call this a labour of love all round. Enjoy' (musicweb.uk.net)

'The performances are all sophisticated... a pleasure to listen to' (American Record Guide)
