Armand Djikoloum, oboe

"In the suave and technically superb grip of Mr Djikoloum and the orchestra, the work was given a trenchant outing of which the composer would have been proud."

Ralph Vaughan Williams Concerto for Oboe and Orchestra / Stratford Herald / Chipping Camden Music Festival - Chineke

Iyad Sughayer, piano

"He captures the music's essence with such a close sense of recreative identity that it feels on occasion as though he could be composing it as he goes along. An outstanding debut."

Julian Haylock / BBC Music Magazine
