Extracts from a review by MusicWeb International of the double CD album Welsh Incident and Other Orchestral Works:

This is a fantastic CD...

A Night at the Opera [is] well constructed and delightfully scored....

Welsh Incident is a marvellous piece ..... one of my discoveries of 2011!...

Enduring City [is] probably the most important work presented in this retrospective CD.....

The Microncerto for double-bass and orchestra is a little masterpiece. It should be a Prom favourite...

[The] impressive Trumpet a great concerto that demands to be in the repertoire of all good trumpet players....

I really enjoyed Cariad, which is ...... light music at its very best with lots of lovely tunes, harmonies and effective orchestration. Ardderchog! (=Excellent!)

Gwlymabsant [is] a real show-stopper!...

[The] absolutely charming Little Suite for a work that is right up there with all the best ‘string orchestra’ pieces in the British music repertoire...

Gareth Glyn is one of the best composers around.....
