Press Reviews:

A well-programmed selection of the composer’s compositions from around the 1990s, superbly performed by Ensemble Exposé... Allgebrah is for solo oboe – the superb Christopher Redgate – and nine strings. The oboe moves around unstable string textures, colliding with and sometimes guiding them, but Redgate’s assured pyrotechnics make what is otherwise ferociously taxing music easier on the ear.

Andy Hamilton - The Wire

 “Brian Ferneyhough’s recorded representation continues to grow, and there are few more persuasive advocates of his chamber output that Ensemble Exposé….

The performances are as persuasive as one has come to expect from an ensemble that has championed music of the so-called ‘new complexity’ for almost a quarter of a century. Christopher Redgate achieves feats of meaningful agility…”
