Press & Artist Reviews
'Bradford on Avon has its own Music Centre with a lovely programme including younger, upcoming quartets and groups. The centre is well supported and does great work in the local community.'
Dr J Bell Burnell, Visiting Professor, Astrophysics, University of Oxford speaking on Radio 3 Private Passions programme
'This well-constructed programme invoked Britten in other pieces, too. Violist Lawrence Power paid his tribute in Britten's Lachrymae, capturing perfectly its ghostly, sometimes manic, shadows, and imbuing the whole with tone-colours of exceptional artistry.'
The Guardian, Academy St Martin in the Fields, May 2013
'It's a wonderfully intelligent compilation, all of it superbly performed by the BCMG instrumentalists. Quite rightly, it's Britten's own music that's the centre of attention; it's music that tries on various styles to see how well they fit, not only anticipating things to come, but also hinting at directions he chose subsequently not to follow.'
The Guardian, Birmingham Contemporary Music Group, Apr '13
'It is comforting to visit a venue where so much care is taken to make the artist feel welcome and cared for. Keep up the good work!'
Rev Bazil Meade, London Community Gospel Choir at Wiltshire Music Centre, Feb '12
'Congratulations on your wonderful centre. It's inspiring that a place like this can exist. We love playing here. The warmth of the acoustic was surpassed only by that of the audience. Perfect for our brand of chamber jazz.' Evan Christopher on playing at Wiltshire Music Centre, May 2011
'Some concerts tick all the boxes, stir the right emotions. This was one such. And, pleasingly, a packed audience showed appreciation in full measure: almost to the embarrassment of director and soloist who seemed visibly touched by prolonged applause.'
Reg Burnard, Wiltshire Times, at Nicola Bennedetti & EUCO Feb '11
'Excellent, beautiful, a wonderful evening!'
The OAE on playing at Wiltshire Music Centre, March 2011
John Williams on playing at Wiltshire Music Centre , April 2011
'The auditorium is wonderful. Great acoustic sound. Great sight lines. Backstage everything we need.'
Alistair Anderson on playing at Wiltshire Music Centre, February 2011
'From the moment we arrived, we felt at home at the Wiltshire Music Centre. It is rare to encounter such a helpful and friendly team. The hall has a warmly resonant and engaging acoustic and the Steinway piano is very fine and is excellently maintained. Great care and thought goes into every detail.'
The Leibniz Trio on playing at Wiltshire Music Centre, February 2011
'I love playing at the Wiltshire Music Centre.'
Imogen Cooper CBE
'You would not know what was hiding behind the outer walls. The acoustic was stunning and I couldn't help trying out some opera arias!'
Eve Loiseau, Piaf
'Very good space for small to medium size orchestras. We enjoy our visits here; warm and friendly staff and audience. Good numbers make us feel we are welcome!'
BBC National Orchestra of Wales
'Very good acoustic. Great numbers (sold-out). Enthusiastic audience!'
City of London Sinfonia
