‘This is an outstanding appraisal of lesser-known and frankly revelatory chamber works”

The Wigmore Soloists most recent album, featuring chamber music by Howard Ferguson, Arthur Bliss and Robin Holloway has been selected as ‘Chamber Choice’ in the February 2024 edition of BBC Music Magazine. In the 5-star review Terry Blain writes “With violinist Isabelle van Keulen and clarinettist Michael Collins spearheading the players, it’s unsurprising that the performance as a whole is something of a revelation. Collins leads Bliss’s Clarinet Quintet, his fluttering arpeggios adding delicate grace notes to the emotionally ambivalent slow movement. The clarinet by no means dominates Bliss’s writing, however, and bristling accounts of the scherzo and finale highlight the teamwork in this performance, each line tingling with vitality and sharp interpretive observations.”
