‘…a jazzier world [than the Toch] though it also features plenty of its composer’s [Hindemith’s] characteristic Motorik which was exhilarating….under Philip Headlam’s baton.‘


‘…and you can’t really praise more highly. Intelligent playing. Intelligent concert.’

Winnipeg Free Press

‘Philip Headlam’s advocacy for this fascinating genre of 20th-century music – conveyed with the perception and enthusiasm of his direction – deserves every commendation.’
