5.0 out of 5 stars Richard Mudge Concertos, 21 Sept. 2009
By 
This review is from: Mudge: Six Concertos in Seven Parts (Audio CD)
At last this remarkable set of English concertos has been recorded, and a stunning performance it is, too. Lots of variety with a trumpet concerto, an organ concerto, and four string concertos. And a setting of Byrd's famous canon 'Non Nobis Domine', with Mudge's string accompaniment is an added bonus, which completes the published set of Mudge's works. As a vicar of a rural parish near Birmingham in the 1740s, these are every bit as good as Handel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Namesake's Concertos, 25 July 2009
By 
R. Mudge (Kent, England) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Mudge: Six Concertos in Seven Parts (Audio CD)
I bought this CD for two reasons: I'm always looking for music by obscure English composers (check out John Garth's excellent Cello Concertos for instance) and I share a surname with this composer. The music is varied, including a concerto for organ and another with a strong trumpet part as well as several with more routine instrumentation. The final track is a short vocal piece. The playing is excellent throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars Parallel excellence with Handel's Op.3, 23 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Mudge: Six Concertos in Seven Parts (Audio CD)
This is a superb release that many will overlook. The Rev. Mudge's 6 concertos are varied in instrumentation but even in inspiration, reminiscent of William Boyce's symphonies in their charming conciseness. Strange the set should await attention from a Swiss ensemble and recoding company, but it is a happy result. Tudor's recording is excellent, and the instrumental (and ensemble playing) uniformly excellent. For a taster indicative of the whole, try track 3, featuring Henry Moderlak's trumpet playing of sublimely sensitive reticence.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Mudge please!, 12 Dec. 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mudge: Six Concertos in Seven Parts (Audio CD)
You've probably never heard of Mudge, but don't let this dissuade you from investigating this excellent disc.

The music is first-rate, pithy and punchy. Plenty of angles and biting harmony among the sinuous lines.

The period performance is utterly stylish and memorably compelling. This band is tremendous.

Priced so well, this is a real 'can have'. More Mudge please!
