Notes & Reviews:

'Perkins is a compelling advocate of the instrument, not only in his painstaking work as orchestrator and arranger, and his enthusiastic and well-researched booklet notes, but most of all in his playing ... This is a delightful disc which will be of interest to a much wider audience than merely the bassoon-crazy' (International Record Review)

'Perkins is an excellent bassoonist who managed to collect some interesting and unusual pieces for his instrument, arranging others himself. His enthusiasm for the repertoire and the bassoon itself are immediately apparent. He plays with a spontaneity that makes us entirely forget technique, so that we never feel like we are witnessing a feat of bravura. His beautiful sound and effortless dexterity all work towards making the music gently caress the ear' (Fanfare, USA)

'The playing here is not just comical (where required), it's also very beautiful - a lovely example of music-making' (Manchester Evening News)

'I admire Perkins' playing very much; it is expressive and highly polished' (Classical Music Web)

'... one of the jolliest CDs to have crossed my desk in ages ... the indefatigable Perkins has assembled some genuine rarities for our delight' (Mail on Sunday)
