“...music that smiled, enjoying itself without an underlying agenda…Egarr is a provocative advocate for some unconventional ideas. Let's have him back soon.”
The West Australian
"This was a feast of fine music from the Baroque era, presented with fastidious finesse by 14 of Australia's most polished string players...The ACO was in formidable form with Egarr, as versatile as he is gifted, at the top of his game."
"The choice of music was excellent and Richard Egarr brought the music to life through his introductions to the music and his playing...Thank you again for a most enjoyable series." - Heather F & John B
