“John Copley’s fine production of The Turn of the Screw at the Royal College of Music … superb playing from the orchestra and clarinettist Daniel Brian Hughes in particular.” – Anna Picard, The Independent on Sunday 30th November 2003
“A most enjoyable and admirably varied programme. Each piece portrayed a new style and character, with the technical security to put across a natural musical understanding and imagination. … A splendid full, even tone, and excellent fluttertonguing. … This was excellent, with fine rhythmic control and dynamic variety.” – David Campell, Angela Fussell, John Blakely, panel for RCM Postgraduate Recital, June 2004.
