Penguin Guide, January 2009

Benjamin Frith has the bargain field to himself. His playing is characteristically sensitive and fresh, and he is well supported by the Northern Sinfonia and David Haslam. Very good, warm recording, in a decent acoustic.

Rad Bennett
The Absolute Sound, April 2000

"[Field] wrote seven concertos for piano and orchestra, ingratiating works that bubble over with good humor and gentle spirit. Naxos has started a complete series of them with this release, in which Benjamin Frith seems an ideal choice as soloist, providing readings that are gracious and genteel, yet never frivolous; quite heart-felt in the slow movements, but never banal. He is ably supported by maestro Haslam and his good orchestra, and the recording, from something of a mid-hall perspective, is warm and transparent. Naxos' budget price makes this initial Field release, and presumably future additions, affordable to all."


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

Classic CD

"He [Frith] negotiate's Field's many awkward corners and unexpected modulations with panache and conviction....Let's hope Naxos let him record the other five"
