a warmth both tonal and emotional.'

 'Drawn from members of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, this new orchestra makes a splendid CD debut.  Directed by Derbyshire-born Richard Jenkinson, who doubles as the admirable soloist in concertos by Boccherini and da Vinci, the orchestra produces some of the most beautiful  string playing I have heard for many a year.  The un-hurried Elgar is an absolute gem; Mozart is crisp, neat and bubbles with happiness, while I was much taken with Paul da Vinci's concerto with the title 'Hope', to mark the Irish peace process.

Sound quality as good as they come, so don't hesitate to buy it.'  - Yorkshire Post
