David Denton
Fanfare, April 2000

"Benjamin Frith, who has been attracting acclaim from my Fanfare colleagues for his recording of the piano works of Mendelssohn, now turns his attention to very different music, with a brilliant account of Tippett's Piano Concerto. ... The recorded sound tends to accentuate the shallow upper-string tone when the going gets tough, and in that sense is more genuine than reverberation-reinforced sound we often encounter. The bottom line has to be one of price, for the Naxos disc comes in the bargain basement, though there is nothing low-price about the product. Those of you who know little about Tippett should start here, as it is the ideal entry into his sound world, and you don't risk much of the family budget."

Mark Pappenheim
Classic FM, February 2000

"The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra under George Hurst do convincing justice to the radiant, intricate, ceaselessly inventive Dances from the opera The Midsummer Marriage... Benjamin Frith is unfazed by the torrent of notes in the Piano Concerto, and plays this beautiful work with tireless loveliness. A bargain-priced feast."
