Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
The Septet is one of Beethoven's sunniest works, and Ensemble 360 promote the happy mood with playing that emphasises bright, clear tone and springy rhythms... The Presto finale intensifies the performance's vivacious impression as Sara Bitllock attacks the G-string melody with gleeful panache, and later on her virtuoso passages light up the texture. The Serenade is another happy piece, but surprisingly neglected. Guy Eshed's pure, agile flute-playing leads a lively performance, by turns delicate and more robust.

Sunday Times
The Sheffield-based Ensemble 360...responds with elan to the perky brio of the youthful composer's allegros, minuet and presto...Guy Eshed's agile flute makes more than usual of the charming, if slight, Serenade for flute violin and viola...An immensely likeable disc.
