The glittering talent that is the Galliard Ensemble

What’s on in London, Duncan Hadfield

“…Throughout, the glittering talent that is the Galliard Ensemble joined by pianist Richard Shaw never seem to put a finger or fingering wrong in what amounts to a challenging programme to say the least. Superbly recorded and supported by excellent booklet notes plus an interview with Birtwistle himself, this is a must-have disc for anyone interested in some of the past half-century’s most challengingly rewarding writing for winds.”
