Reviews
 

As with the other works on this CD, Corp is well served by the musicians: Rebecca de Pont Davies is in full command of the composer’s rather wide-ranging melodic line, being naturally richer in her middle and upper registers. The inclusion of the intensely expressed texts in the booklet is an added advantage. An excellent recording (IRR)

Known mainly as a conductor of light music, Corp’s sunny String Quartet, spiky cantata, and flowing Clarinet Quintet mark him out as an engagingly colourful composer. Excellent performances. (BBC Music)

Superbly played by the Maggini, relishing the original textures that Corp devises for the four instruments … Corp’s writing is fluent in responding to each prose passage … Andrew Marriner is the brilliant clarinetist … Nicely intimate sound. (Gramophone)
