Press/Media: Research

Description

Media coverage of 'Music for a Prussian Salon' by Boxwood & Brass (which features Emily Worthington of the University of Huddersfield), including Gramophone Magazine and a 5-star review in specialist online publication Early Music Review.

'“button-bright performances caught in a sympathetic acoustic... performed with spirit and vigour” (Gramophone)

The performances by Boxwood & Brass of this little-explored repertoire are beautifully prepared and executed, with a polished tone from both clarinettists and an authoritative and focused contribution from horns and bassoon... While this CD makes a valuable contribution to our wider understanding of an important aspect of the history of the clarinet, it also provides a very entertaining and rewarding listening experience for the general listener”  (Early Music Review)

''[The CD] sheds light on a little-known figure who played a crucial role in music history. ... These performances are impressive, technically but also musically. ... this disc is not to be missed. I am looking forward to upcoming projects of this outstanding ensemble' (Musicweb International)

'outstanding, both technically and musically' (Andrew Benson-Wilson)
