Reviews

… Long since acknowledged as a classic of the genre, the First Quintet (composed for the New York Brass Quintet in 1961) combines crowd-pleasing melodic appeal (both outer movements will have you grinning from ear to ear), depth of expression (try the cloud-hung central Chaconne) and meticulous craftsmanship (as a former principal trumpet with the LPO, Arnold knew everything there was to know about the brass family)….. These immaculately prepared, fervent performances have been vividly and spaciously captured by the Nimbus production crew, making this a genuine tonic for Arnoldians and brass-heads alike.
Andrew Achenbach, Gramophone, 2/1/2007

...The highlight for me is a splendid version of Arnold's Symphony for Brass, the playing is top quality and it provides an exhilarating listen throughout its four movements.
Nick Bailey, Classic FM, 3/1/2007
