'His trade-mark invention never flags, allied with grace and sophistication and a gift for melody second to very few. A fitting tribute to one of the least pretentious of composers' (The Observer)

'The advocacy of the Delmé Quartet is persuasive and artistically unwavering. Their well-defined and technically accomplished readings are filled with vitality and spirit and marked by a thoughtful but not calculated and otherwise fussy approach that might hamper the spirit of the music' (Fanfare, USA)
