Notes & Reviews:

In an exciting new project, the young English oboist James Turnbull casts his eye on the works of his countrymen. Gorgeous romantic works from the Victorian era intertwine with vivid, sparkling works by living composers. Particularly noteworthy among these gems is the world premiere recording of John Casken's Amethyst Deceiver.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Overall, this is very nice playing. The most notable aspect of this program. They are recorded often. They are very intellectual, pensive, and contemplative.
