"This is the most enjoyable account of Schubert's Octet I can remember, on disc or in concert ... The sense of a live performance in both Octet and song is beautifully caught. Another fine issue in the Wigmore Hall series" - Gramophone

"It was Collins' dexterity that dazzled, fingers leaping, tossing off the decorative flourishes, impossibly nimble" - The Times
