BBC CHOICE

 5 stars Performance / 5 stars Sound

'Full of playful contrapuntal ideas and energetic passagework...this music positively flourishes in the hands of the Ensemble Marsyas.'
BBC Music Magazine

'...an overwhelmingly joyful listening experience... this is a prize-winning ensemble and the release may well bring them yet more glories.' Early Music Review

'... the real star is Peter Whelan's bassoon, burbling through its vast range with dancing precision, underpinning the quartets and shining in a C major concerto.' The Guardian

5 stars 'Dip anywhere into this CD and you can expect to be delighted by the distinctive colours as well as the often gutsy brio of the playing...an experience not to be missed.' The Irish Times

Founding member Peter Whelan and ‘the queen of the recorder' (BBC Radio 3) Pamela Thorby are the soloists challenged with meeting the virtuoso demands of this engaging music. The four-movement Quartet in B-flat Major for recorder, oboe, violin and continuo is among one of Fasch's most popular works; full of catchy tunes and contrapuntal ingenuity in equal measure, virtuosity is demanded from all concerned. The Concerto in F Major for recorder and strings was only recently attributed to Fasch.  It is full of characteristic Fasch-isms and of the same dramatic quasi-recitative style as his Bassoon Concerto.

The ensemble and featured soloists are: Josep Domènech Lafont & Molly Marsh oboe, Alec Frank-Gemmill horn, Sophie Gent & Huw Daniel violin, Alfonso Leal del Ojo Chamorro viola, Sarah McMahon cello, Thomas Dunford theorbo, Philippe Grisvard harpsichord and Pamela Thorby recorder.

'Bassoonist Peter Whelan is outstanding, although the whole group plays with uncanny rapport, turning Fasch's smart blends of instrumental timbres, baroque and galant styles, elegant Largos and frisky, virtuosic Allegros, into a stream of unalloyed listening pleasure.'
