"[Murray Perahia’s] gestures are flowing and demonstrative, and they brought forth a performance with the same shapeliness and zest that characterized the concertos. The orchestra produced a lovely sound, section for section, and often played with the cohesiveness of a chamber ensemble."
Alan Koznin, New York Times
"Despite the apparent technical ease with which the music flowed, this was a superbly controlled performance with conductor Ian Brown seamlessly integrating the soloists to great effect with the well-drilled Academy of St Martin's in the Fields chamber orchestra. There are many difficulties in this work, which make performances as dazzling and faultless as this a rarity."
Susan Nickalls, The Scotsman
