Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

The Naxos disc challenges the outstanding Hyperion issue coupling these same two charming double concertos. If the Irish players are not quite as persuasive as their Scottish counterparts on Hyperion, their playing is just as refined, and Frith and Tinney are a fair match for Coombs and Munro, less powerful but just as magnetic and even more poetic. The transparent recording helps, very appropriate for such youthful music.
