this deft ensemble, … this imaginative disc

Fiona Maddocks, The Observer

the Ensemble excels as an instinctive collective

Edward Bhesania, The Strad

…hardly more than one listening should convince you of Ferguson’s high craft as he works within Schubert’s Octet texture, as should the vibrancy of the Berkeley Ensemble’s performance even compared with Dennis Brain and friends in the work’s first recording.

Peter Quantrill, Gramophone

a lovely expressive performance … stunning bassoon playing from Andrew Watson

Robert Hugill, www.planethugill.com

a delight … warmly communicative and commendably polished readings, most truthfully recorded and balanced within an ideally intimate acoustic.

Andrew Achenbach, Classical Ear
