Gramophone Classical Music Guide

2010

“Benjamin Frith presents a very formidable challenge to rival versions, at super-budget price.
Both works are played with effortless fluency, plus all the immediacy and freshness of new discovery. In No 1 Frith is acutely responsive to the delicate charm of the Scottish-inspired ('Twas within a mile of Edinboro' Town) slow movement. He makes one aware of Field's teasing delight in the unexpected in the smiling outer movements, to which he brings a wide range of tone, and piquant accentuation in the last. There's warm, sympathetic support from the Northern Sinfonia under David Haslam.
The performers revel in the composer's surprises of modulation, rhythm and orchestral colouring, while from the soloist there isn't a trace of the perfunctory in passagework. The recording (in a resonant venue) might be thought overforward and full, but it remains a true bargain.”

Gramophone Magazine

“Both works are played with the effortless fluency we know from his Mendelssohn series - plus all the immediacy and freshness of new discovery”
