Penguin Guide, January 2009

The Naxos disc challenges the outstanding Hyperion issue coupling these same two charming double concertos. If the Irish players are not quite as persuasive as their Scottish counterparts on Hyperion, their playing is just as refined, and Frith and Tinney are a fair match for Coombs and Munro, less powerful but just as magnetic and even more poetic. The transparent recording helps, very appropriate for such youthful music.


"To the great credit of Benjamin Frith and Hugh Tinney that without score in hand, you would be hard pressed to guess who was playing what. In short, a not-to-be-missed opportunity to explore the precocious young Mendelssohn at super-bargain price."

BBC Music Magazine

"Benjamin Frith and Hugh Tinney, who obviously relish this music...Why pay more."
